CNN's HLN network at a new low makes major changes

HLN network president Albie Hecht has announced three new senior level programming hires: Former BET and Spike TV executive Keith Brown is the new senior VP for programming; Kari Kim is VP of programming development; and former Nickelodeon VP Adrienne Lopez is the new special projects director.

Hecht has already shaken up both the primetime and daytime schedules. He dropped "Raising America," "Now in America" and "Evening Express." For the moment they are replaced by re-airings of "Showbiz Tonight" and "News Now."

Also, the recently debuted health and wellness programming block has generated little viewer interest. No surprise, since program promotion has been light. Hard to rise from a bottom position in a 250 channel environment. The new hires have nowhere to go but up.

Do we have too many news and information channels?
