Something is about to cause a media frenzy on The Young and the Restless, with Entertainment Tonight anchor Nischelle Turner and CBS Los Angeles anchor/reporter Suzanne Marques on the scene.

"Extra, extra! Read all about it!" Some major news is heading to The Young and the Restless' Genoa City, and the CBS soap opera has scooped up real-life television news anchors to help dish out the dirt.

Official show teasers reveal that Entertainment Tonight anchor Nischelle Turner and CBS Los Angeles anchor/reporter Suzanne Marques will both be appearing on the episode scheduled to air on Friday, February 8.

Turner may look familiar not only from her position as an anchor on Entertainment Tonight, but also because she's an entertainment correspondent for CNN and HLN's Showbiz Tonight. One of her most recent soap-related stories was an interview with All My Children alum Michael B. Jordan (ex-Reggie Montgomery), which can be viewed below.

There were no cameras, no publicists, no incentive for @michaelbjordan to do something kind for a stranger. There was only a fella with a HUGE heart who saw someone who needed a HUGE hug. Jacqueline is a wardrobe stylist here at ET. She's been battling breast cancer for months. She's the kindest woman you'll ever meet. Michael didn't know she worked with us. He just knew he wanted to make her feel loved. THIS is the measure of a man. ITS A SMALL WORLD. Thank you Michael. ❤️❤️❤️ Repost @entertainmenttonight ・・・ This is what genuine kindness looks like. @michaelbjordan is a great actor and an even better person. 🤗 Thank you, Michael.

Y&R is remaining mum about what exactly brings the TV journalists to the screen, but there are several possibilities that could warrant major GC news coverage, including the truth about J.T.'s disappearance finally coming to light, Summer Newman (Hunter King) returning to town, and Kerry (Alice Hunter) carrying a big secret that could be exposed.
