CNNâ€™s Campbell Brown is stepping down as host of â€˜Campbell Brown.â€™ The reason she gave is that the ratings are lower than she wants them to be. This change has been a long time coming for her, and she wanted to be honest about why she left the show.
She didnâ€™t want to add any â€˜spinâ€™ to her move. So, finally, somebody simply admitting the truth. I admire that. Campbell Brown left her show because â€˜Campbell Brownâ€™ had low ratings. That is wonderful for her to tell it just like it is.
â€˜Campbell Brownâ€™ aired at 8 pm EDT on CNN while Fox News shows â€˜The Oâ€™Reilly Factor.â€™ All in all, the 8 pm slot is one of the toughest spots on cable news featuring not only Bill Oâ€™Reilly, but also Nancy Grace and Keith Olbermann. Brown said that she is not a pundit but rather a journalist.
CNN has yet to announce new programming for the time slot. I wish Campbell Brown luck in whatever she does in the future. I think it took guts to admit the truth.
