E! News beefs up anchor team

Cabler sets Kennedy, Sadler as permanent weekend hosts

In a sign that E! Entertainment is investing more in its news operations, the cabler has named Jason Kennedy and Catt Sadler as the permanent co-anchors of “E! News Weekend.” Weekend news program had been anchored by a rotating group of correspondents, including Kennedy and Sadler.

Net is also solidifying a permanent anchor to join Giuliana Rancic on weekday program “E! News.” Newscast had been hosted by Rancic and Ryan Seacrest, though Seacrest is no longer a regular host of the program.

Kennedy and Sadler have been on E! since 2005 and 2006, respectively. Kennedy has also contributed entertainment coverage to NBC’s “Today.” Sadler has hosted E!’s “The Daily 10” and has handled red carpet coverage for the cabler.

Additionally, Sadler and Kennedy will appear on E! Online’s “Live From E!,” a Web series that Kennedy has also been tapped to host.

“Jason and Catt’s versatile skills make them a huge asset to our News division at E!,” said E! News topper Cyndi McClellan.
