Natasha Curry, Carlos Diaz Out at HLN

curry diaz hlnThe changes continue at HLN: anchors Natasha Curry and Carlos Diaz have left the network, TVNewser has learned.

Curry, the anchor of “Weekend Express,” joined HLN in 2008. She became the solo anchor of the weekend newscasts, as well as the fill-in anchor for “Morning Express with Robin Meade,” in 2010. A spokesperson for HLN says Curry decided to move back West to be with her family.

Diaz joined HLN in 2011 from ESPN. He is also relocating, moving to the West Coast after two years as an Atlanta-based sports anchor.

The two departures come just a week after network president Albie Hecht held an all-staff meeting in Atlanta to brainstorm ideas for the new HLN. Hecht, who joined HLN two months ago, has already tweaked HLN’s programming in primetime, daytime and weekends.

Replacements have not yet been named for Curry or Diaz. In the interim, a rotation of HLN anchors, including Lynn Berry, will anchor “Weekend Express,” while Joe Carter, Turner sports anchor Jared Greenberg and CNN sports anchor Andy Scholes will handle sports coverage.
