Giuliana Rancic returns to E! News after three years, sips celebratory champagne with co-host Jason Kennedy
The long-term E! News anchor is ready to get back on set. Catch her return beginning Tuesday at 7 pm ET on E!
Giuliana Rancic is back, even though she wasn't gone off our media eye, she was heavily missed on the TV screen. The veteran entertainment journalist and a long-time E! News host will return as a co-host on Tuesday, three years after she left the show.
In a clip released on Tuesday to celebrate Rancic's return, we see the 44-year-old make her way through the offices of the network at 10 Universal City Plaza, and walk in without an ID.
She catches co-host Jason Kennedy doing some questionable “vocal warmups,” with "Okurrr," pitches. Rancic stops by the glam room, where her squad greets her with open arms. But no one is more excited about her return than her co-host.
“I’ve been looking forward to this moment for a freaking long time. Welcome back, baby! G’s back!” gushes Kennedy, 36, as the two clink a glass of champagne.
“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,” she said. “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.”
The mom of 5-year-old Duke, with husband Bill Rancic, began her career at E! as a correspondent for the long-running TV series and became a co-host of E! News in 2005. She will also continue as co-host of E!’s Live from the Red Carpet and you can catch her return to E! News beginning Tuesday at 7 pm ET on E!
