CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield to Host Primetime HLN Show

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 2.26.46 PMCNN’s Ashleigh Banfield announced Thursday that Legal View w/ Ashleigh Banfield was coming to end and that she would be hosting a new HLN show come the fall.

“I have been absolutely delighted for the last five years to be working with some of the most talented people in television news… just remarkable people here at CNN. So it is really tough to tell you that I’m going to be leaving, kind of,” Banfield announced on air.

“I’m going to leave this time slot at 12:00 noon and… I’m going to jump over to prime time on HLN, 8:00 PM in the fall. Super excited to do it,” she said.

Banfield also simultaneously tweeted about the move.

Banfield follows the lead of CNN anchors like Michaela Pereira and Robin Meade in making the jump over to CNN’s sister network. Banfield will still make appearances on CNN as a legal analyst.
