Nancy O'Dell is a television host and entertainment journalist.
O'Dell currently serves as co-host of Access Hollywood, a 30-minute entertainment news program produced and syndicated by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. She has been with the show since its 1996 inception, and became co-host in 1999. O'Dell serves as a contributor for NBC's Today Show and Dateline NBC. In addition, O'Dell co-hosted the Miss USA and Miss Universe competitions in 2004 and 2005, respectively. She also co-hosted the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade on WNBC from 2004-2006. She also co-hosted the Miss USA 2006 pageant with Drew Lachey, the Miss Universe 2006 pageant with Carlos Ponce, as well as the recent Miss USA 2007 pageant with Tim Vincent.
O'Dell has appeared in several movies as either herself or a generic entertainment reporter, and has also taken on other acting roles, including minor roles in the television series Charmed (Season 1 finale and season 5 premiere) and Scream 3 as herself (2000). O'Dell was also the host and consulting producer of the USA Network talent competition Nashville Star over its first two seasons, but made the choice to leave the show upon its move from Saturday to Tuesday because of conflicts with her Access Hollywood schedule.
On January 13, 2008, after the 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards were canceled as a result of the 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike, O'Dell co-hosted NBC's 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards Winners Special with Access Hollywood co-anchor Billy Bush.
In 2009 Nancy was also the host of NBC's pre-show for the 66th Annual Golden Globes with both Tiki Barber and Brooke Burke. She also starred as herself in the new Hannah Montana Season 3 episode Cheat It.
