nancy-o-dell-picture-3Access Hollywood anchor Nancy O’Dell had a long run, but now she’s announced that she is leaving the show this week after 13 years on the airwaves communicating everything gossip-worthy among the celebs.

Released by her publicist: “Having been at Access Hollywood from day one of the show, this has been an incredibly tough decision for O’Dell. She will miss her Access Hollywood family, but looks forward to still seeing them all on the red carpet.”

The statement goes on to say that O’Dell is leaving the show for a fresh start and (possibly) a new opportunity. No details of the possible new job were mentioned or released, but you don’t leave a 13-year gig without knowing what comes next, generally.

O’Dell started with the show’s inception in 1996 and became co-anchor of the show in 1999.
