Laverne will take over the position from longtime host Giuliana Rancic, who it was announced would be leaving the show on Friday (May 7) after nearly two decades of hosting the red carpet.

“I’m so excited and deeply humbled to be hosting E!’s iconic red-carpet coverage,” Laverne said in a statement. “For many years I would wake up early on awards show days, get my snacks in place and watch E!’s coverage all day long. I dreamed of walking red carpets.”

“Now, not only have I had several fun and amazing personal red-carpet moments, I also get to be a red carpet guide for E!’s discerning audience and chat with my colleagues and folks I deeply admire for these very special events in their lives. I can’t wait to get started while hopefully serving up fashion fantasies for the ages honey,” she added.

Laverne recently opened up about finding love during quarantine. Find out more here!
