Chelsea Handler stepping down from E! talk show

By Brian Stelter, CNN

(CNN) - Chelsea Handler's late-night television show on E!, "Chelsea Lately," will come to a close in August, freeing the comedian to create a different show elsewhere.

The "Chelsea Lately" finale date, August 26, was announced by the cable channel on Wednesday, capping months of speculation about Handler and E!'s plans to split. Her E! contract expires at the end of this year.

In a national late-night field dominated by men, Handler is the only woman with a daily talk show.
