Ashleigh Banfield Jumps to HLN…CNN fills void with John King Election Show…

HLN announced that Ashleigh Banfield is moving to HLN where she’ll take over the 8pm slot being vacated by Nancy Grace.

HLN Executive Vice-President Ken Jautz made the announcement this morning…

I’m very pleased to announce that Ashleigh Banfield is joining HLN.

Ashleigh’s new show will air live, M-Thu, 8–9 pm ET, and will premiere on Monday, October 17. She will bring her legal experience and views to HLN prime, tackling the day’s most pressing social and legal issues mixed with her own passionate point of view and spirited conversation.

Ashleigh and her distinct journalistic style is the perfect fit as we continue to refocus on our news roots and increase our live hours of programming.

Please join me in welcoming Ashleigh to the HLN family.

To fill the 12 noon hour CNN will be slotting John King for an election related hour that will run…wait for it…through the election.

  1. John King?

    Really?

    So Piers Morgan was busy!!

    [head scratch]

  2. If the show is a weekday version of his weekend show it will be watchable. If it’s more paid shills hawking spin and talking points for Trump and Clinton then it won’t. My guess it’s a mix of both which means it’s probably not worth watching.

  3. What exactly is Ashleigh Banfield’s legal experience?
