Billy Bush’s media exile after the “Access Hollywood” tape is apparently over.

The former co-host of NBC’s “Today” show was fired in October 2016 after the release of a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape, which featured President Donald Trump bragging about “grabbing” women “by the pussy” while Bush laughed and egged him on.

Less than three years later, Bush told People magazine on Wednesday that he’ll be hosting “Extra Extra,” a syndicated Warner Brothers entertainment show.

Bush said that the tape was a “bad moment.”

“But one moment doesn’t define your life,” he added.
