Economic hardship caused by the coronavirus is also credited as a factor.
All three shows are currently based in New York City E! News officially relocated from
Los Angeles last year but the network’s future in-studio productions will reportedly
return to the west coast.

1991, just as its stable of anchors and correspondents has remained in constant rotation.
