Prosecuter turned TV personality Nancy Grace is leaving HLN after her contract expires in October, according to an exclusive story from the Hollywood Reporter published on Thursday.

Ken Jautz, the executive who brought Grace to HLN eleven years ago — when it was named CNN Headline News — praised his hire, saying the HLN staff will remain “champions of Nancy’s mission.”

“Nancy has worked tirelessly on behalf of the missing and exploited for more than a decade on HLN,” Mr. Jautz said. “She gave a voice to the voiceless, and we are extremely grateful for her contributions to the network.”

The 56-year-old lawyer and TV personality may be losing her nightly cable program, but she’s hardly heading into an early retirement.

“Shortly before her departure from HLN, her third novel (and fourth book) — Murder in the Courthouse — will hit stores on Oct. 11,” said the Reporter. What’s more, “The first in a series of Hallmark Channel movies based on the characters from her novels is scheduled to air later that month, with Kellie Martin starring as Grace’s fictional alter ego, Hailey Dean.”

Additionally, Ms. Grace says she is at work on another television project, one she hopes will be more tightly integrated with “a very large digital component.”

“I will always be wedded to a traditional platform — which is TV, God help me.”
