Campbell Brown Leaving Cnn

Campbell Brown announced that she’s leaving CNN after her show suffered low ratings due to competing news shows at 8 p.m.

Campbell Brown issued a statement that said: "Simply put, the ratings for my program are not where I would like them to be. It is largely for this reason that I am stepping down as anchor of CNN's 'Campbell Brown.' "

Brown further explained that competition from The O’Reilly Factor, Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Nancy Grace’s program all contributed to her stepping down, saying, "Shedding my own journalistic skin to try to inhabit the kind of persona that might co-exist in that line up 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."
