Actress Laverne Cox has been tapped as the new host of E! News’ signature red-carpet coverage following the departure of long-time host Giuliana Rancic. 

Starting with the 2022 awards season, Cox will be a part of the Live From E! team where she will also host the show’s celebrity interview specials, the Los Angeles Times reported.   

“I’m so excited and deeply humbled to be hosting E!'s iconic red carpet coverage,” Cox 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."
