The name Erin Lim has become so synonymous with the E! Television channel that some people actually wonder if this is the name of the channel’s founder/owner. This confusion comes from the fact that the name ‘Erin’ is initialized with the letter ‘E’ and also because of Erin’s far-reaching work on the E! channel. Otherwise, the E! franchise was actually founded in 1987, some three solid years before Erin herself was even born.
So, how come Erin has become so closely associated with the entertainment-based channel? This is one of the things we are going to find out as we explore the person behind the name. Join us as we take a brief but profound look at the life, career and everything you need to know about Erin Lim.
Erin Lim – Biography
Erin Lim is the host of E! News’ The Rundown which is one of E! Channel’s first fully produced weekly shows for Snapchat. The program recently expanded to three days a week after early success on the platform. Currently, the show is reported to attract an average of 13 million viewers per episode.
Born on April 13, 1990, in California, Erin reportedly went to Chapman University Dodge College of Film And Media Arts, graduating in 2013. This is the only detail about her education that is available to us. We do not know when she went to college or her course of study. We do not also have details about her elementary and high school days.
Erin Lin is an American by birth and Caucasian by ethnicity. However, it is on record that both of her parents are not Americans by birth. While her father is said to be a Filipino, her mother is Mexican.
Erin also serves as a correspondent for E! News and as a regular panellist on Live From E!, a well-loved digital show that focuses on pop culture themes which E! News developed for Facebook Live and other social media platforms and it has been airing since September 9, 2013.
To buttress the point we made before about Erin Lim being known for her spell on the E! channel, in 2017, her work reportedly helped E! News to earn a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for ‘Outstanding Entertainment News Program’. She continues to collaborate with the E! News team to reinvent entertainment and celebrity news.
Sources traced to late 2018 report that Erin Lim receives an annual salary of $60,000 for her work at E! while other sources report that she has an estimated net worth of $1 million. She supposedly gathers her net worth mainly from her job as a TV show host. But there are reports that Erin also makes ad revenue from her social media pages. Since she currently has over 181,000 fans on Instagram and more than 21,000 followers on Twitter, her social media earnings must be reasonable at least.
Relationships And Affairs – Who Is Erin Lim’s Boyfriend?
Erin Lim has been dating actor Lamorne Morris since sometime in mid-2016 but this remained only a subject of speculation until September 2017 when they made their affair public.
During the summer of 2018, Erin and Lamorne inadvertently made themselves a subject of media rumours. It was rumoured that they had a secret wedding after Erin shared a vacation photo of her and Erin in a cosy location in France. Eventually, it turned out to be fake news.
So, right now, Erin Lim is not married but still shares a romantic relationship with her boyfriend Lamorne Morris. Born on August 14, 1983, Lamorne is a respected African-American comic actor. Lamorne, who once worked for the Black Entertainment TV (BET), is probably best known for his role as Winston Bishop in New Girl, a sitcom that aired on the FOX Channel between September 20, 2011, and May 15, 2018. Lamorne is also reported to have worked as a game show host for the Cartoon Network’s live-action game show, Brainrush, which ran between June and July 2009.
There is an indication that Erin Lim had other affairs before her current one with Lamorne. As reported by Daily Mail UK, a certain Erin Lim lost her fiance named Emeka Udechuku in an auto crash. According to the report, Erin had a daughter with late Emeka who, before he died, agreed to play a fatherly role for Erin’s son from a previous relationship. The said auto crash occurred in December 2015, a few months before Erin’s romance with Lamorne reportedly began.
