Australian presenter Scott Tweedie out of action as entertainment and celebrity gossip show E! News axed – PerthNow

After almost 30 years of breaking entertainment and celebrity news, E! News is no more.

Variety has reported that the show was cancelled by its parent company NBCUniversal which comes just one year after it announced changes to its programming.

Production of the nightly show broadcast from Los Angeles transitioned to a morning show based in New York which involved staff cutbacks including 20 – 25 Los Angeles based employees.

Since relocating to New York, the show began airing in January this year and was hosted by Lilliana Vazquez and Aussie Scott Tweedie, before it was shut down in March due to coronavirus.

Along with E! News, two other NBCUniverals programs – Pop of the Morning and In the Room — have been axed.

The cancellation will mean more lay-offs for the production team in a last attempt to “streamline its programming and restructure internally” after the global coronavirus pandemic was said to have impacted the network and played a part in the decision.

A source told Variety that the “extent of the lay-offs are unclear” but the company was trying to place employees within other positions at the network.

Since launching in 1991, E! News has aired over 7500 episodes and has been hosted by several big names including Ryan Seacrest, Maria Menounos and Giuliana Rancic.

In October last year, Rancic left the show again, after first departing in 2015 following a 13 year stint at the helm to pursue other opportunities with E.

In May last year, E! axed Busy Phillips’ talk show, Busy Tonight after just one year on the air.

The Dawson’s Creek alum shared her feelings in a tearful Instagram post.

“I work hard AF and love to prove people wrong and finally, the men will always try to f*** you over so f*** em and figure out something else,” she said.

All of E!’s studio production will be based in Los Angeles from now on.
