Thompson Bids Headline News Goodbye

Publish date:

Former NYPD Blue star Andrea Thompson quit her CNN Headline News gig
after just seven months on the job.

'It is time for me to make a change in my professional life,' she said in a
prepared statement.

It looks like Cable News Network took all that heat for hiring an actress to
replace the popular Lynne Russell for nothing.

Sophia Choi, who co-hosted KCBS-TV's morning show in Los Angeles before
joining Headline in October, is replacing Thompson.

Choi's claim to fame at KCBS was a 'dirty downloading' investigative piece,
where she 'reported undercover as a 13-year-old boy to expose sexual predators
on the Internet,' according to CNN.
