Campbell Brown Leaving CNN

Campbell Brown Leaving CNN – Campbell Brown, who previously had been considered one of the more popular news anchors at CNN, is reportedly leaving the network because her program was not able to bring in the ratings that the network was looking for. Her program, which has been appearing at 8PM on CNN, has reportedly been struggling for quite some time, and despite the fact that Brown had hosted several post-presidential debate shows during the campaign season, she was unable to garner a higher number of viewers in an effort to save her show.

“Of course I pay attention to ratings,” Brown said in a statement addressed to the public. “And simply put, the ratings for my program are not where I would like them to be. It is largely for this reason that I am stepping down as anchor of CNN’s Campbell Brown.” She went on to say that the decision was hers to make, and that she was not being forced out of her position by the network. She said that she had been considering the move for quite some time, when she was unable to turn the poor performance around.

“I could have said that I am stepping down to spend more time with my children (which I truly want to do). Or that I am leaving to pursue other opportunities (which I also truly want to do). But I have never had much tolerance for others’ spin, so I can’t imagine trying to stomach my own. The simple fact is that not enough people want to watch my program, and I owe it to myself and to CNN to get out of the way so that CNN can try something else.” She said in her statement.
