It was announced on Friday that Giuliana Rancic will return to E! News. The host departed from the E! Network's show three years ago and will be co-hosting alongside Jason Kennedy once again as of September 4.

Rancic shared the surprising announcement on social media last week with a photo of her original E! News headshot. "Returning to host E! News is every bit as thrilling to me today as it was 16 years ago when I joined the show and embarked on this wonderful career," she reported to E! News.

Among other things, Rancic spent her time away from E! News co-hosting Fashion Police and Live From the Red Carpet. The 43-year-old continues to split her time between her home in Chicago and work in Los Angeles.

Kennedy also responded via Instagram stating, "What if I were to tell you that @giulianarancic is my new Co-Host?? WELL IT’S HAPPENING AND I REFUSE TO TYPE IN LOWER CASE LETTERS UNTIL I SETTLE DOWN. #REUNITED"

Rancic first started with E! News in 2002 and will take the place of Kennedy's previous co-host, Catt Sadler. Sadler made a controversial exit from the show in December of 2017 after revealing there was a massive disparity in pay.

Congratulations, Giuliana!
