Maria Menounos has been named co-anchor for "E! News" and will report on pop-culture stories alongside the show's current hosting team of Jason Kennedy, Terrence Jenkins and Catt Sadler.

"E! News" said it has added three new regular contributors -- Zuri Hall, Erin Lim and Sibley Scoles -- to its lineup, as well.

As previously announced, longtime co-anchor Giuliana Rancic will be leaving her day-to-day role on "E! News" Aug. 10.

She will remain on the network with co-hosting duties on "Live From the Red Carpet" and "Fashion Police."

"As an established entertainment and news journalist with strong Hollywood connections, Maria has proven herself to be a great fit with the E! News team. And with their diverse backgrounds and wide-ranging areas of expertise, Sibley, Erin and Zuri will be key additions to E! News, which boasts the youngest and most affluent audience amongst all entertainment shows," John Najarian, the cable channel's executive vice president of news and digital, said in a statement Thursday.

"We are thrilled with E! News' success as we continue to integrate the show more closely with the network's digital platforms and to create new ways of engaging with an evolving audience that consumes information and entertainment across multiple screens."
