E! Channel – A Quick Overview

Launched in 1987 as Movietime, E! is a renowned American basic cable channel that comes under the ownership of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming division of NBCUniversal. In 1990, the channel was rebranded to highlight its increasing coverage of daily Hollywood gossip, fashion, television and music, contemporary film, and celebrity-industrial complex. The fact that E! has not drifted away from its primary roots makes it even more popular and beloved among its fans and followers.  

The global multi-platform brand for all things pop culture brings its audience juicy gossip, crisp content, and authentic TV shows to keep them entertained on all fronts. E! News aired from Los Angeles and broadcast nightly on the channel before being moved to mornings from NYC until summer 2020 when the show was cancelled. The cancellation of this long-running block was partly due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the result of E! trying to re-centralize production in Los Angeles. But, for fans the supreme publisher of pop culture coverage and entertainment news has maintained its presence online via the E! News website as well as on social media platforms.
