Jason Kennedy is leaving E! to pursue new opportunities. 

The 39-year-old joined E! and E! News in 2005 and eventually became the co-anchor of E! News alongside Giuliana Rancic.

In a statement on Instagram, Jason wrote: "I've had the time of my life at E!. Most recently, I loved being the host of In the Room, but Covid made it impossible to capture interviews with celebrities in a more personal setting, so I have decided to explore new opportunities."

"I'm leaving with a grateful and full heart thinking about my experience, and the lifelong friendships I've made along the way at E! I have a slate of exciting projects that I've been working on, and I can't wait to share with you soon."
