E! pulled Baker off-air immediately at the end of October when sexual harassment claims surfaced and said he would remain off-air indefinitely as an investigation started.

He frequently appeared on E! News on E! since he joined in 2008 and also appeared on E!'s digital social media series Live from E!.

E! in a statement now says the channel and Baker have parted ways. E! says the severance is unrelated to the sexual harassment claims against Ken Baker. E! says the investigation into sexual harassment claims against him continues although he isn't at E! anymore.

"The investigation into the recent allegations relating to Ken Baker is still ongoing. However, unrelated to the investigation, the network and Ken Baker have mutually agreed that he will not be returning to his role on E! News. We will not be commenting further."
