As a journalist, having interviewed every President since Clinton, Menounos holds the distinct honor of having conducted the only interview with the entire Obama family, touted by ABC News as the top defining moments leading to the historic victory. Her ground-breaking conversational style of reporting led her, at the age of 22, to become the youngest person to host Entertainment Tonight.
