Maria Menounos Steps Down From E! News Amid Brain Tumor Battle

Maria Menounos is stepping down from her position at E! News following a brain tumor diagnosis.

The 39-year-old television personality said that she will “truly miss everyone” after being with the network for the past three years.

“I am so grateful for the past three years at E!. I had such an amazing time co-hosting with Jason Kennedy and working everyday with the wonderful roster of talent on the show including producers, staff and crew,” Maria said in a statement.

She added “It was such a special, good-hearted group and one I’ll always consider family. A special thank you to Frances Berwick and Adam Stotsky for all the support they have shown me through the years especially during these tough times. I will truly miss everyone and looking forward to this next chapter in my life.”

Since her diagnosis, Maria has undergone surgery which removed 99.9 percent of a benign tumor.
