E! Extends Giuliana Rancic’s Overall Deal Through April 2016

E! has extended through 2016 the overall deal for one of its most popular television personalities, Giuliana Rancic. Cyndi McClellan, president, network strategy & E! News, made the announcement Wednesday.

Under the deal, Rancic will remain anchor and managing editor of “E! New,” the net’s daily news broadcast, as well as continue in her various roles across the cabler, including covering big events as a part of “Live From the Red Carpet.” Rancic also co-hosts “Fashion Police” alongside Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos and is the center of reality show “Giuliana & Bill,” which follows her, husband Bill Rancic and their baby Duke.

“Giuliana has been an important part of the E! family for twelve years now, and we are thrilled to extend her overall deal with the network,” said McClellan in a statement. “Giuliana brings not only a wealth of experience to the air, but also a fun, relatable and candid energy that makes her a fan favorite amongst E! viewers and incredibly popular across the entertainment community.”

Two other television personalities for the network, Ryan Seacrest and Chelsea Handler, will also see their contracts expire this year. Handler has been open about the fact that she’s exploring options outside of E!, and Variety reported in April that Seacrest is in talks at Fox and NBCUniversal.

Rancic started at E! in 2002 as an “E! News” correspondent and became anchor and managing editor for the show in 2005.
