Shaun Robinson Leaves ‘Access Hollywood’
Access Hollywood contributor and its weekend co-anchor Shaun Robinson is leaving the entertainment newsmagazine after 16 years to develop scripted and unscripted shows through her production company for its distributor NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.
“Shaun is a talented journalist with a work ethic that won’t quit,” said Linda Finnell, SVP of programming at NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution, in a statement. “We will definitely miss Shaun at Access Hollywood but we are very happy for her as she enters into this new chapter.”
Robinson said: “There are so many more opportunities awaiting me, both on-camera and as a producer. I’m extremely excited about creating fun and meaningful content through my production company, RobinHood Productions Inc., focusing specifically on empowering women and girls about which I am so passionate. I will certainly be back in front of the camera soon and I look forward to announcing my next on-air role in the near future.”
Access Hollywood, from producer Rob Silverstein, is averaging 2.4 million viewers this season, flat to last year, with a 1.0 rating among women 25-54, down 9% year to year, based on Nielsen live-plus-same-day ratings.
