"I know that we are all working hard to grow the brand and take HLN to the next level," HLN executive vice president and general manager Albie Hecht wrote in a memo to staffers Monday. "Of course, during our evolution, some changes will be difficult. This is one of the toughest ... Entertainment stories will continue to be a major pillar for HLN, and [host] A.J. [Hammer] will remain an important part of that coverage."
"Congrats to the AMAZING @showbiztonight team for 9 incredible years," Hammer tweeted Monday. "What an honor. What a ride. #thankful."
The Post said the cable network has not announced a replacement for the Monday-Thursday program.
