VIDEO Maci Bookout is coming back to MTV… as a host!

Maci Bookout to host Teen Mom 2 after show specials on

It’s official! Former Teen Mom star Maci Bookout has a new job with her old boss as the host of the Teen Mom 2 after shows on! The reality star made the announcement in a video posted by MTV just moments ago.

Maci is looking and sounding great! She even went with a slightly more conservative (or dare I say “professional?”) hairdo, which looks fantastic!

The announcement shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise given that Maci has been hinting all week on Twitter that she was in New York City at the same time as the cast of Teen Mom 2:

November 4

November 6

all politics aside… today is such a big day for me! #getit #careermoves #nyc

Teen Mom Maci Bookout gets job as host for MTV

November 7

headed south, i had an awesome couple of days in NYC starting my new stuff and working hard! happy to be goin home, later players

so happy i got to spend a lot of time with @ChelseaHouska @KailLowry @TM2LeahDawn and @PBandJenelley_1 really enjoyed yall!! see u soon!

Plus, the announcement should come as no surprise because Maci has always been interested in pursuing a career in television journalism. She was pursuing her degree in it at Chattanooga State Community College, where she often co-anchored “Today @ Chatt State.” Her educational background, combined with being able to relate to the cast of Teen Mom 2 like no other journalist could, helped land her the job, which was previously done by Su-chin Pak.

Congratulations to Maci Bookout! It sure seems like a perfect fit — let’s hope we see her doing more with the younger ladies of Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom 3! (Can you say Teen Mom 2 Reunion Special with Dr. Drew and Maci Bookout?)
