In this letter, a new exact expression of the ergodic channel capacity for a Rician fading channel is provided that is written in terms of exponential integral and incomplete gamma function. Also, a good approximation of the Rician fading channel capacity is derived from the exact expression and its accuracy is numerically verified.
