Alicia Quarles has vacated her position as the New York correspondent for “E! News” after three years on the job.
A spokesperson for E! confirmed the exit to TheWrap in a statement, saying they wished her well. Reports in late June said a staffing shuffle would affect Quarles and other “E! News” personalities Terrence Jenkins and Jesse Giddings.
Both Jenkins and Giddings will remain on the team, the network said, which expanded Thursday as Maria Menounos was named co-anchor. New correspondent additions include Zuri Hall, Erin Lim and Sibley Scoles.
Hall comes from MTV where she hosted the network’s after shows and specials, Lim previously served as host of “E! News Asia,” and Scoles served as host of Revolt TV’s flagship music show “Revolt Live.”
“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,” said John Najarian, Executive Vice President, News and Digital at E!
Najarian further complimented the new correspondents saying “their diverse backgrounds and wide ranging areas of expertise… will be key additions to ‘E! News.”
