One of the most polarizing figures on cable TV is calling it quits at her TV home of 12 years. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nancy Grace announced to staffers today that she will leave HLN at the end of her current contract in October.
Grace told THR she will be starting a new chapter that will include “a very large digital component.”
“Grace, 56, broke the news Thursday morning to her staff of 18 — some of whom have been working with her since the late 1990s, when she got her start co-hosting on Court TV with the late Johnnie Cochran — at the network’s CNN Center headquarters in Atlanta, where Grace shoots the majority of her shows,” THR reports. “New York-based staffers learned of her departure simultaneously via video conference call.”
The final episode of Grace’s show will reportedly air Oct. 13. A spokesperson for HLN said a new series, which will “utilize the expertise of the current team,” will be developed to take over the 8 p.m. slot.
