Kmetko is MIA on E! for Emmys

'News Live' co-anchor bidding cabler adieu?

Has Steve Kmetko been X’d from E!?

Friday was apparently his last day at the basic cabler, as he spent the day saying goodbye to co-workers.

The E! Entertainment news personality was scheduled to work on Sunday, co-hosting a two-hour countdown show centered on the Emmys as well as a post-Emmy show. On Friday night, producers of the coverage were told Kmetko would not be working Sunday.

One source at E! speculated whether all this is a contract negotiation; however, Kmetko has another year left on his pact.

He has been co-anchor of “E! News Live” (and its previous incarnation, “E! News Daily”) for the past eight years.
