Maria Menounos to Replace Giuliana Rancic as ‘E! News’ Co-Anchor
E! News has found their replacement for co-anchor Giuliana Rancic in entertainment journalist Maria Menounos.
Rancic announced that she’d be departing from her long-time position as E! News co-anchor earlier this month and now we know that Menounos will be stepping in as her replacement.
In addition to Maria’s promotion, E! has added three new diverse faces to their line-up: Zuri Hall, Erin Lim and Sibley Scoles. The three will appear regularly on E! News Now and E! News.
“As an established entertainment and news journalist with strong Hollywood connections, Maria has proven herself to be a great fit with the E! News team. And with their diverse backgrounds and wide ranging areas of expertise, Sibley, Erin and Zuri will be key additions to E! News, which boasts the youngest and most affluent audience amongst all entertainment shows,” said John Najarian, Executive Vice President, News and Digital, E!. “We are thrilled with E! News success as we continue to integrate the show more closely with the network’s digital platforms and to create new ways of engaging with an evolving audience that consumes information and entertainment across multiple screens.”
