HLN Retains Nancy Grace
The New York Post’s Michael Starr – and there’s another name I haven’t typed on this blog in years – writes that HLN has re-signed Nancy Grace through 2017…
Nancy Grace isn’t going anywhere, contrary to reports. The host of HLN’s long-running “Nancy Grace” has just inked a new, multi-year deal to remain the centerpiece of the network’s prime-time lineup through at least 2017.
Grace told me Tuesday that she was approached back in July about a contract extension by CNN chief Jeff Zucker, who also oversees sister network HLN. (Zucker brought in Albie Hecht as HLN’s EVP/GM in September.)
“I’m overwhelmed, happy and really looking forward to working with Albie and Jeff,” she said. “I’m all about crime and justice and that part of my show will stay the same. We might change [the show] up a bit, but my goal has and always will be helping to find missing people, especially children, and helping solve homicides and highlight [criminal] cases I think people should know about.”
