Albie Hecht Out at HLN…

TVNewser’s Mark Joyella writes about HLN toppo Albie Hecht leaving the network…

Under Hecht, HLN underwent massive programming changes and was rebranded as “the first social TV network.” The HLN that emerged was criticized by some as lacking focus, with much of its lineup dominated by reruns of Forensic Files–hardly cutting edge social television.

Zucker said in 2016, HLN would focus on “driving..programming during the daytime and overnight hours closer to CNN’s, and by utilizing a much stronger library of content that has been built in the last three years.”

CNN doc re-runs on HLN? Is that what Zucker is saying? What other “library of content” is there?

In the interim, HLN will be led by Ken Jautz, who previously led the network before taking his current role as executive vice president of CNN/US

Bye-bye social TV experiment…
