Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez is the host of Extra, the Emmy® Award–winning entertainment news program.  This is Lopez’s tenth consecutive season as the show’s host, after co-hosting Extra’s weekend edition since January 2007.

A man of many trades, Mario Lopez has the overwhelming desire to always keep active.  Lopez is also the host of the nationwide iHeartMedia radio shows On with Mario Lopez and iHeartRadio Countdown with Mario Lopez. Lopez also has his own YouTube channel called The Lopez Family. Created alongside Awestruck, the channel features his wife Courtney, their two children, and two dogs. Not only does Lopez have a proclivity for the entertainment industry, he is also an avid sports fan. He has taken his love for sports, specifically boxing, to the next level as a host of the iHeartRadio podcast, The 3 Knockdown Rule, which is also featured on the FOX Sports Radio website.

In September 2014, Lopez released his first autobiography, Just Between Us. In his memoir Lopez shares his successes and disappointments, never before-told stories and family values. Lopez became a New York Times bestselling author for his healthy eating guide Extra Lean. In May 2011, he released the follow up to Extra Lean entitled Extra Lean Family. This new book featured recipes and tips that are beneficial to the entire family. Additionally, Lopez pennedMario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness a bestselling fitness book that offers readers a look into his impressive workout regime, and Mud Tacos, a vibrant children’s’ book he co-authored with his sister Marissa.  As a follow up to Mud Tacos, Lopez released Mario & Baby Gia, a children’s book he wrote for his daughter, Gia. The book is currently being developed into an animated series.

No stranger to rigorous routines, Lopez danced his way to the finals in the third season of ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars. Shortly after, in summer 2009, Lopez successfully completed his first run on Broadway.  He starred in the long-running hit musical A Chorus Line as the audience loved character ‘Zach.’

Mario was named the Alumni Ambassador of Fitness by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), while joining the ranks of some 25 other prominent alumni, including Denzel Washington and President Clinton, in the organization’s BE GREAT campaign.  Mario helps bring to light the major issues affecting today’s young people, including the importance of graduating from high school and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the key role community-based organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs play in the positive development of children.

Even with all his other ventures, Mario is still in love with acting.  Lopez reincarnated his guest-starring role as Dr. Mike Hamoui on the final season of F/X network’s popular show Nip/Tuck. Lopez’s run on the series garnished an instant and well-deserved cult following.  He previously starred in the highest rated program in ABC Family history, Holiday in Handcuffs. He also starred opposite Mark Consuelos in the made for TV movie Husband for Hire, which was the most watched program ever on the Oxygen Network  Last summer, he was the host of the CBS live action game show, Candy Crush.

Mario currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Courtney and their daughter, Gia and son, Dominic.
