Campbell Brown quits CNN Job. After calling it quits, Campbell Brown reveals that she has struggled with her CNN television ratings. The TV news host decided to leave her show to spend more time with her family, although some reports suggest she may be looking for a job.
Brown advertised a “no bias, no bull” persona in a straight news and analysis program with a focus on politics and election coverage. However, cable news viewers have increasingly sought edgier, more opinionated programming, such as the Fox News Channel. In fact, while the channel does a great job with news, but ratings for their commentary shows are low.
The TV host said she was leaving to spend more time with her two young children. However, there are other reports that suggest she might be pursuing new opportunities, and rumors suggest a new job at the Fox News Channel. Bill O’Reilly has dominated her spot averaging 3.3 million viewers this year, “But I have never had much tolerance for others’ spin, so I can’t imagine trying to stomach my own,” she said in a statement.
“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. The reports of Brown leaving the network to join a competing company is always that possibility.
