Giuliana Rancic is already the face of NBCUniversal’s E! cable network and she will be sticking around for a couple more years. She signed a new contract extension to stay with E! through April 2016.
Rancic signed an overall deal, which will cover her E! News hosting duties, along with her Live from the Red Carpet specials before major Hollywood events like the Oscars. She has also hosted Beyond Candid, in which she sits down with A-list stars for intimate interviews and co-hosts with Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos.
She is also the star of her own reality show, Giuliana & Bill, which covers her life with her husband, Bill, and their young son, Duke.
But that’s not all! Rancic also serves as the managing editor of E! News.
“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,” Cyndi McClellan, President, Network Strategy & E! News, said in a statement released by the network on Wednesday. “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.”
Rancic added, “I’m thrilled and blessed to be able to pursue all of my passions while continuing on at E!, my home away from home. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!”
Rancic and E! previously agreed to a three year deal in May 2012. She joined the network back in 2002 and has been an anchor and managing editor for E! News since 2005.
