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.
