She’s back! Three years after she left the network, Giuliana Rancic has announced she’s returning to E! News to co-host the entertainment TV show alongside her former co-host and friend Jason Kennedy. “Returning to host E! News is every bit as thrilling to me today as it was 16 years ago when I joined the show and embarked on this wonderful career,” the 43-year-old said in a statement on Friday, June 15.
“Co-hosting alongside one of my best friends, Jason Kennedy, with one of the most talented teams in entertainment journalism, makes this move even more special. I can’t wait to reconnect with the E! News audience and go on this journey together once again,” she added.
“Giuliana is an incredibly charismatic and well-respected entertainment journalist. As a longtime member of the E! family, it’s exciting to welcome her back home to E! News,” John Najarian, Executive Vice President & General Manager, News & Digital, E!, said in a statement. “While E! News has seen massive growth across digital and social, we have also continued to expand and elevate our television coverage, and Giuliana is an excellent addition to our weeknight series, which remains the most watched entertainment news franchise with young women.”
Giuliana first joined the E! network back in 2002 and was later named an E! News co-host in 2005. In 2006, Giuliana was joined by Ryan Seacrest as her co-host on the popular program.
In 2015, the mom-of-one left E! News to pursue other projects but stayed with the network to host Fashion Police — which ran from 2010 until 2017 — and E!’s Live From the Red Carpet. She most recently covered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding as a special correspondent for the network. Giuliana will return to TV with E! News on Sept. 4 — we’re so happy you’re back, G!
