Campbell Brown Leaving CNN

Campbell BrownCampbell Brown will step down as CNN's 8PM news anchor due to low ratings, the NY Times has confirmed.

"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. CNN will have to figure out what that is," said in in a statement.

"Shedding my own journalistic skin to try to inhabit the kind of persona that might coexist in that lineup is simply impossible for me. It is not who I am or who I want to be; nor is it who CNN asked me to be at any point."

Campbell's eponymous news program has reportedly averaged a disastrous 591,000 viewers. She will continue to host until CNN finds a replacement.

What's up with the Brown's at CNN, Aaron Brown was the best anchor I enjoyed him very much, and now Campbell Brown, she was not incompetent she was a breath of fresh air if I turned the TV on. After she spends some time at home she will return somewhere..
Thanks, Ms Campbell for your time on the show, I enjoyed your broadcasts. Best of luck to you!

Good, she was pretty incompetent. If CNN wants their ratings back, they need to get rid of the "personalities" and go back to having people who actually understand basic concepts like what NATO does.
