Giuliana Rancic Steps Down as ‘E! News’ Co-Anchor
E! News co-anchor Giuliana Rancic has decided it’s time to leave her post, announcing that she’ll be transitioning out of her day-to-day role on the show.
Rancic finishes her E! News stint on Monday, August 10th, but will still work for the network, maintaining her Fashion Police position and continuing to host Live From The Red Carpet. Giuliana has faced her fair share of scrutiny over the past couple of years, most recently due to some negative remarks she made about singer Zendaya’s dreadlocks during Fashion Police, but before the rumors begin flying, Giuliana’s leaving has nothing to do with that.
“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,” said Rancic. “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 Oxygen 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.”
We wish her the best on all the exciting things she has ahead.
