Legal theatrics are Nancy Grace’s specialty and it looks like Jeff Zucker wants to keep that expertise in the family. According to the New York Post, Zucker banned all CNN and HLN personalities from popping up on Good Morning America.
Reportedly this impacts Grace, one of CNN and HLN's biggest stars, who has sparred with GMA’s legal analyst Dan Abrams in the past. In a statement to the NYP, CNN clarified:
A CNN rep said, “While it is true that Nancy no longer appears on ‘GMA,’ it has nothing to do with banning [particular] clients. Like every other cable network and broadcast outlet with a morning show, we ask that CNN/HLN talent not appear on other network’s morning shows, unless they are promoting a book or a personal project.”
Nancy Grace has handed down her own judgement on if she’ll return for the second season of Swift Justice. The confrontational TV personality has revealed she will not be returning as host when the syndicated series resumes, citing its production moving from Atlanta to Los Angeles, according to The Huffington Post. Judge Judy Glass, who sentenced O.J. Simpson to prison, is said to be signing on as the series’ new host.
