If you want more proof that Jeff Zucker is taking the news out of Headline News, check out his latest hires.
HLN announced three new executive hires and you can put their news experience in a thimble.
The network hired former Nickelodeon executive Adrienne Lopez. She'll be the special projects director at HLN.
The new senior VP of programming is Keith Brown and he comes from that news beast (sarcasm) Spike TV.
Lastly the new VP of programming development is Karl Kim and he comes from Worldwide Biggies, which is basically a production house.
HLN continues to move further away from news, which is what the channel was originally known for. It's kind of like if ESPN changed to a cooking channel.
