Giuliana Rancic departs E! red carpet
“After 20 fabulous years hosting E!’s red carpet, I have decided to step out of my red carpet heels."
Giuliana Rancic is stepping down as host of E!’s red carpet coverage after almost two decades.
“After 20 fabulous years hosting E!’s red carpet, I have decided to step out of my red carpet heels into a new pair of shoes,” she wrote on social media.
Her announcement comes three months after co-host Ryan Seacrest, exited E!’s Live From The Red Carpet after almost 14 years.
But Rancic has a deal with E! parent NBCUniversal.
“One of my passions is great storytelling and I am thrilled to announce a new development deal with E!’s parent company NBCUniversal where I will be producing and bringing stories to life,” she wrote.
“While we will all miss watching Giuliana bring her iconic interview style, infectious humor and keen sense of fashion to E!’s red carpet, we are excited to announce a development deal across NBCUniversal where she will bring her passion projects to life,” E! said in a statement. “We look forward to collaborating with Giuliana in the future and we will always be her biggest fans — on and off the carpet.”
Rancic began her career at E! as a correspondent and became a co-host of E! News in 2005.
She visited Australia in 2015 to host the ASTRA Awards.
