It’s the end of an era. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nancy Grace is leaving her HLN series after 12 years.
Hosted by Grace, the program addresses current issues, particularly true crime news. The show began in 2005 and has garnered both praise and criticism for Grace’s outspoken personality.
Today, Grace told her staff she will be leaving the program in October when her contract ends. Grace later said she will be moving on to a different project involving “a very large digital component.” In her show’s place, HLN will “utilize the expertise of the current team” to produce a new series for the 8 p.m. timeslot.
I will always be wedded to a traditional platform — which is TV, God help me. My plan is to merge those two in an effective way, in my voice, the ‘anti-crime’ voice. Our show has never really been about me. It has been about the stories that we tell and the people we talk about and the mysteries we try to solve and the children we try to bring home. There’s an entire section of our population that I want to reach.”
The finale episode of Nancy Grace will air on October 13th on HLN.
