Welcome back, Giuliana! It’s been three years since Giuliana Rancic left E! News, but she’ll be returning this September as co-host alongside Jason Kennedy, who she refers to as ‘one of her best friends’.
Rancic replaces Catt Sadler, who left the network six months ago after a discrepancy in pay between herself and Kennedy.
People was the first to report the return of Rancic and she had this to say to the publication: “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,” Rancic, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “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.”
Rancic is set to make her E! News return on September 4. You can catch E! News weekly on E! at 7 p.m. ET.
