Amy Paffrath      

Television Personality, Known for her role as the Host of E! "News Now" and "Dating Naked"

Amy Paffrath was born on July 22 in St. Louis, MO. A natural performer, she channeled her energy into gymnastics and put on newscasts for her family. As one of 7 kids, Amy had to find ways to stand out, and did so by producing and performing plays at school. The young starlet always had a curious nature and decided to pursue a career in journalism. While attending the world renown University Of Missouri School Of Journalism, Amy completed an internship at Entertainment Tonight in Los Angeles alongside TV veterans Mark Steines and Mary Hart under the leadership of Executive Producer and fellow Mizzou alumni, Linda Bell Blue. After earning a degree in Broadcast Journalism in 2005, she made her long anticipated move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams.

Her Midwestern magnetism helped her to immediately land two on-air reporting jobs at Direct TV for In The Mix and Created By You. The ambitious actress-reporter also nabbed roles in film, commercials and music videos, including Paramore's number one hit "Misery Business." In early 2007, she was given the opportunity to host her very own pop culture news show, Broadcaster News on, which aired daily and racked up more than 300 episodes.

Since then, Amy’s career has grown exponentially. She has served as the longtime host of E! News Now, a red carpet correspondent for TV Guide’s Hollywood 411, series regular on MSN's The Big Debate, and guest host on both G4’s Attack Of The Show and Fuel TV’s The Daily Habit. Amy could most recently be found holding court with the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights on MTV’s Jersey Shore: After Hours. She is a budding stand up comic and frequently performs her act in famous LA comedy clubs. Amy is also a regular at Improv Olympics in "Top Story! Weekly," a sketch comedy show skewering the latest news and pop culture.

Amy is making a name for herself as a sitcom star, appearing in 5 guest-starring roles last year alone. Amy’s most recent credits include the CBS pilot Oh F, its You, directed by James Burrows, as well as appearances on Hot In Cleveland, Sullivan & Son, and 2 Broke Girls.*

She also hosted in the popular reality series Dating Naked on VH1 which fetched her immense recognition. She hosted both the first and second seasons of the show. In 2015, she hosted the Mid-America Emmy Awards.
