Campbell Wants Out of CNN Soup

CNN (Cable's Nielsen Nightmare) has granted Campbell Brown's request to tear up her contract that will free her from ratings-starved prime time 8 p.m. program.

Brown threw in the towel after her weeknight program continued to get throttled in the ratings by opinionmeisters Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, and HLN's Nancy Grace, as well as by  routine tests of the emergency broadcast system. The 41-year-old Brown joined CNN in 2008 after 11 years with NBC News.

Brown will continue to host the program until a replacement is found.
