Sad news out the Entertainment Tonight Canada camp today, as it’s been announced Rick Campanelli, Erin Cebula and Natasha Gargiulo are all leaving the long-running newsmagazine show.

“Heading into our 13th season of ET Canada, we are making some changes to the show,” the series announced via its website on Friday. “It’s an emotional day as we share the news that Rick Campanelli, Erin Cebula and Natasha Gargiulo will be moving on to pursue new ventures. After 12 years as co-host, Rick will be leaving ET Canada when his contract comes to a close later this summer. We are grateful for his dedication to the show and wish him well.”

“Following 12 years as our West Coast reporter, Erin is moving on to produce and host quality lifestyle and entertainment content for broadcast and new media in Vancouver,” the post continues. “And after 12 years as our correspondent in Montreal, Natasha Gargiulo will continue host and produce entertainment shows for TV and radio, and expand her lifestyle retreats to empower women. You can still catch Natasha and Erin on the show throughout the month of July, and Rick will appear until the end of August.”

“We sincerely thank Rick, Erin and Natasha for their tremendous contributions to ET Canada, and wish them every success in their future endeavours,” it concludes.

Launched in 2005 as a spinoff to Entertainment Tonight, ET Canada‘s current roster includes Cheryl Hickey, Roz Weston and Sangita Patel.

Take a look back as Campanelli related his thoughts on 10 years at ET Canada back in 2014.

This is just the latest shakeup at a former Shaw property since Corus bought the company in 2016. Timber Kings, You Gotta Eat Here!, Income Property, Big Brother Canada, Leave It to Bryan and Real Housewives of Toronto have all be cancelled by Corus this year.

  1. Personally. I would have eliminated Cheryl before either Erin or Natasha.
    Èrin and Natasha were very down to earth and approachable.
    Cheryl is too much into herself. Does not carry herself well. Even standing still she is very affected.
    Roz is a keeper.

    1. I have to agree with you .. I find Cheryl very “posed” and a little too rigid .. Erin & Natasha had an ease about them, more natural.
      Roz is totally a keeper!!

  2. corus ratings are going to decrease.
    Canadian shows such as income property and leave it to Bryan are very popular. i will no longer watching Et or Global.

    1. I’m not impressed with Corus .. Income Property, Leave it to Bryan & Timber Kings are 3 of my favorite shows.
      They represent Canada for God sakes!!

  3. So, no representation on ET Canada outside of Toronto? There is more film and television production in Vancouver and British Columbia than anywhere else in Canada, yet Corus feels they don’t need a West Coast correspondent any longer? Never mind as well Vancouver’s proximity to Los Angeles and California. What are these people thinking? I agree Erin comes across as natural and down to earth, while the Toronto gang is all about their outfits and what they are wearing, sometimes I feel they think its all about them and they are the story! Hello, you people are there to report and interview celebrities, your not the celebrities. Here’s an idea, cut the wardrobe budget for the show and you wouldn’t have to lay anybody off!

  4. How dare they cancel Income Property. You said everything well. Sangita is more personable than Cheryl.
    What are they thinking? Why not cancel E.T? It won’t be worth watching. You are right. It isn’t all about T.O.
    Will not be watching Global.
