Giuliana Rancic returns to her co-host role at E! News on E!. She’ll be on the program at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., covering the day’s main pop culture stories.
Rancic first joined E! News as correspondent in 2002 and co-anchored the program from 2005-2015. She will join co-host Jason Kennedy beginning September 4th.
“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,” said John Najarian, executive VP and general manager, news & digital, E!. “While E! Newshas 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.”
Rancic was part of E! News’ multi-platform coverage of the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
“Returning to host E!

I can’t wait to reconnect with the E! News audience and go on this journey together once again.”
