    Giuliana Rancic Returning to E! News as Co-Anchor
    When Rancic left E! News, she stayed the network on as a co-host of its red-carpet coverage at award shows and on "Fashion Police," which aired its series finale in 2017.

    Giuliana Rancic will return to E! News this September as co-host of its nightly news program with Jason Kennedy, three years after leaving the gig.

    She will replace Maria Menounos, who left last July following surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    When Rancic left E! News, she stayed the network on as a co-host of its red-carpet coverage at award shows and on "Fashion Police," which aired its series finale in 2017.

    While anchoring E! News, Rancic's likeability and humor landed her a reality series with her husband, winner of season one of "The Apprentice," Bill Rancic. But she received backlash in 2015 when she critiqued Zendaya's dreadlocks on a red carpet with what some believed were racist remarks.

    "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" swept the Emmys and HBO's "Game of Thrones" came back with a "Best Drama" win during TV's biggest night. But it was director Glenn Weiss who provided the most touching highlight of the night after he pulled off a successful proposal to his girlfriend, Jen Svendsen, as the cameras rolled on-stage.

    Rancic apologized and said the full context of her comments were edited out. Months later she left E! News, though she was a guest host a handful of times.

    The network was thrust into the Time's Up conversation when correspondent Catt Sadler quit over a pay disparity with Kennedy.

    E! said the two had different jobs and therefore were compensated differently.

    People was first to report Rancic's return.
