Nancy Grace Is Ending Her Show And Leaving HLN

July 1, 2016 / Posted by:

TV speaker repair shop owners are in a real panic today. Their business is about to lose probably its biggest sector. People aren’t going to be coming in for their bi-monthly speaker repair anymore because the master of screaming, howling, hollering and so forth, Nancy Grace, is saying “adios” to HLN and her current show, Nancy Grace. Which is good news for me, because it means HLN can hire me to scream at people and make unfounded accusations on TV and finally live out my dream.

Human megaphone Nancy opened up to The Hollywood Reporter (but didn’t show them her tit’s eye) about her decision to leave HLN. After 12 years at the network, Nancy broke the news to her team of 18 on Thursday. Her final show will be on Oct. 13, 2016. But that doesn’t mean we’ll finally be rid of the screeching justice vigilante. Nancy says her next venture, whatever it will be, will involve “a very large digital component.” Lord above, please tell me that doesn’t mean a cam site. Nancy goes on to say:

“I will always be wedded to a traditional platform — which is TV, God help me. My plan is to merge those two in an effective way, in my voice, the ‘anti-crime’ voice. Our show has never really been about me. It has been about the stories that we tell and the people we talk about and the mysteries we try to solve and the children we try to bring home. There’s an entire section of our population that I want to reach.”

The people. The stories. The children. Right. So glad we’ve all been reminded of the hero Nancy is. But why take it from her when we can let her HLN legacy do the talking? She was very accurately parodied in Gone Girl by the always incredible Missi Pyle. She led the coverage on the Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias cases, with her broadcast on the not-guilty verdict for Casey drawing 4.57 million viewers. Her knack for nicknames, like “Tot Mom” for Casey Anthony and “Vodka Mom” for Toni Medrano (who later committed suicide that was speculated to be in relation to all the media attention that was led by Nancy). And even though I mentioned it earlier, slyly, I’ll bring it up again – her nip slip on Dancing With The Hasbeens. Really stellar stuff here. Great job, Nancy!

One part of the Nancy Grace legacy we actually can all celebrate is her former employee, Mary Cella. Mary went on a truly fabulous Twitter spree yesterday after finding out Nancy was leaving HLN. Uproxx picked up on this glorious outburst of insight into the psyche of someone that worked for her and the experience of working for someone as sane as Nancy clearly is. They’re all fucking gems but here are some of my personal favorites:

Ok, sure, it’s obviously horrible to work for someone whose typical vocal volume is somewhere between “shrill” and “harsh.” But those tweets also tell me that Mary got a free pair of shoes and her boss’ approval to go to an orgy. Free shoes and sex sounds pretty damn good to me.
