Greg, I found it somewhat astonishing (and rather refreshing) that Brown was so contrite and frank in her exit statement. It’s rare to see a media personality explicitly say, “My ratings suck. People don’t want to watch me. So I’m leaving to give someone else a shot.”
In my opinion, the direct nature of her comments made her additional claims — wanting to spend more time with her kids and the opportunity to pursue other endeavors — seem more genuine and credible. I wish her the best.
