Michaela Pereira is leaving HLN.
The journalist’s two-hour daily news program, Michaela, is among three shows that will no longer air on the cable network, Mediaite reported Tuesday.
Across America with Carol Costello and Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield — network mainstays — are also on the chopping block.
In a memo obtained by Deadline, HLN head Ken Jautz wrote to staffers Tuesday that the change is due to increased political coverage across cable news networks.
“The current cable news landscape is dominated by politics. Our live news shows have not benefited from this trend given our story mix,” Jautz wrote.
He added: “In today’s news environment, every network has to focus on its strengths. To ensure HLN’s growth, we will shift some of our resources from live to longform programming and produce our live shows in as streamlined a manner as possible.”
Pereira, Banfield, and Costello will all host their last shows on Oct. 26, while a new programming schedule will kick off on Oct. 29.
As apart of the new programming, Morning Express With Robin Meade will extend its time slot from 6am to 12pm ET, and On the Story will air between 12pm to 3pm ET.
Pereira’s exit from HLN comes two years after she said goodbye to CNN’s New Day in April 2016.
But Michaela — the only live national morning program based on the West Coast — struggled to find its footing in the ever-changing network.
HLN trimmed an hour from Michaela‘s three-hour time slot in December 2016, instead choosing to expand Morning Express With Robin Meade.
Pereira has yet to issue a statement about the programming changes.
