Campbell Brown Signs Off CNN

Brown_7.11.jpgWith her television future still unknown, Campbell Brown said goodbye to a three-year stint at CNN tonight. “To each of you who tuned in every night or even every now and then, thank you,” said Brown. “I mean that.”

Brown thanked her staff, who were all waiting in the wings at CNN’s New York studios. “I cannot say enough about the people who work on this show. They are the most talented dedicated loyal caring group of people. I have really loved working with each and every one of them.”

Brown was given a bouquet of flowers and, probably more importantly, champagne. The cork was popped before the studio lights went down.

Beginning in the fall, CNN’s 8pmET slot will be filled by a new program co-hosted by Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker. Until then, CNN daytime anchor Rick Sanchez will occupy the timeslot.

Brown’s goodbye (Update: Now with video), after the jump…


For those who may not already know, this is my last night hosting this program. And to each of you who tuned in every night or even every now and then, thank you. I mean that. I have already said pretty much everything I want to say about me. But I cannot say enough about the people who work on this show. They are the most talented dedicated loyal caring group of people. I have really loved working with each and every one of them. And I want to say thank you to you guys. I’m going to miss you. That’s it, good night, everybody, thank you.
