Renee kicks off the 24th season of “Extra” as co-host alongside Tanika Ray, AJ Calloway and host Mario Lopez. This is a promotion for Bargh, who has been a correspondent and weekend co-host since joining the show in 2010.
Cementing herself as one of Australia’s most visible talents, Renee has made a name for herself in the U.S. during her tenure with “Extra,” having interviewed all of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In addition to her skills as an interviewer, Renee has covered all the major events in Hollywood and has become a red-carpet staple at the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes, among others.
Hailing from the beautiful Byron Bay, Renee relocated to Sydney to fulfill her dream of becoming a full-time performer. Bargh graduated from Brent Street Performing Arts College, where she honed her skills as a dancer, singer and performer.
During her career in Australia, Renee’s first hosting gig was on Channel Nine’s surfing adventure series, “Surfari.” This was a dream job for Renee, who cut her teeth on the getaway-style format, profiling the very best surfing locations around the Pacific.
Renee became one of the most popular television presenters on Channel [V] and co-hosted “What You Want,” Channel [V]’s studio countdown show; was host of the weekly V Rater and the V News; and presented two series on B430, Channel V’s youth travel show, taking her to Budapest, New Zealand, New York and Los Angeles. Additionally, Renee has hosted numerous red carpet events, movie premieres, the Arias, the Astra Awards and an array of festivals, including two live broadcasts from the Big Day Out; a ten-hour broadcast from Sound Relief; Splendour in the Grass; Homebake; and Good Vibes.
