E! announced Thursday that entertainment reporter, actor, and former beauty queen Maria Menounos will be joining its flagship E! News as a co-host, according to Deadline.

Just a few weeks ago, the network announced Giuliana Rancic would leave the show after 10 years. "This is such a thrilling time for me and I thank the gang at E! for understanding my desire to embark on this next chapter in my life," Rancic said in a statement at the time. Her last appearance will be Aug. 10.
