Giuliana Rancic is leaving E! News.
The 40-year-old presenter – who has two-year-old son Duke with husband Bill Rancic – will step down as a day-today anchor on August 10, but will continue in her roles as co-hosts of the network’s ‘Live From the Red Carpet’ and ‘Fashion Police’ shows.
And as well as those programmes, Giuliana is “excited” to be able to focus on other ventures too.
She said: “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 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.”
Though the network admitted they will “miss” the presenter on a day-to-day basis, they are thrilled she will continue to host her other programmes for them.
Adam Stotsky, E! general manager and president of Esquire Network, said: “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.”
