#COVID-19- E! News has been canceled after 29 years of operation
E! News, the most-watched entertainment news show that premiered in 1991, has been canceled after 29 years on the air.
A representative for the network confirmed to EW saying the show was canceled along with “Pop of the Morning” and Jason Kennedy’s interview show “In the Room” due to the financial fallout caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
This is after NBCUniversal, the parent company of E! shared plans to restructure its programming with an emphasis to “focus on streaming and away from traditional television.”
Lilliana Vazquez and Scott Tweedie served as the most recent hosts for “E! News,” providing celebrity news and covering some of the biggest parties and events in the industry.
Vazquez addressed the cancellation of the show with an Instagram post on Wednesday
She wrote: “Thankful for this incredible adventure and I will miss this team and crew beyond belief,” she wrote, captioning a picture taken at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. “Yes…even the 4 am call time.”
