Giuliana Rancic Announces She’s Leaving E! News
Rancic, arguably E! Entertainment’s most recognizable personality, will be leaving her duties as day-to-day anchor of E! News starting Monday, Aug. 10. Though she leaves E! News, Rancic is not leaving the network entirely. She will continue to work as a co-host of E!’s Fashion Police and conduct interviews on E!’s Live From the Red Carpet.
“For more than a decade, I was fortunate enough to play a role in the success of E! News and will miss my family at the show. At the same time, I am excited to not only continue as host of two major franchises on E! but also executive produce the aspirational new show Rich in Faith for Oxygent as well as take my wine and clothing lines to the next level. This is such a thrilling time for me and I thank the gang at E! for understanding my desire to embark on this next chapter in my life,” Rancic said in a statement.
E! General Manager Adam Stotsky also released a statement, saying, “During her time here, Giuliana played an instrumental role in building E! News into a global entertainment news powerhouse and, while we will miss seeing her on set every day, we are delighted to continue to work with her on Fashion Police and Live From the Red Carpet.”
Rancic has breached out from E! before. She starred on a reality series, Giuliana & Bill alongside her husband, Bill Rancic, and previously hosted the Miss USA Pageant. She recently expanded her brand by releasing a book, Going Off Script, launching her wine brand Xo, G Wine, and creating a fashion line with HSN, G by Giuliana.
