Handler, the only female to have a daily talk show on the late-night circuit, began her stint in July 2007. She was never shy about criticizing her network home on-and-off-air but says she will embrace the next opportunity.
“I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years,” Handler in a statement. “I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I’m glad I went.”
E! may develop a new late-night show but E! News is slated to occupy the 11pm time slot.
