Nancy Grace Walks Out on Radio Interview

By Mark Joyella 

HLN host Nancy Grace walked out on a radio show interview Tuesday, after the Sirius XM hosts peppered her with questions she called “shots” and “attacks.”

Grace appeared in studio with Sirius hosts Jim Norton and Sam Roberts, apparently expecting to talk about a Hallmark television series based on her books—and a new novel just published. Instead, the questions focused on Grace’s HLN show, the trial coverage that earned her fame, and the decision to end the show after 11 years.

In June, HLN boss Ken Jautz released a statement saying that “(Grace) has decided to leave HLN this fall.” Asked by Norton “Did they ask you to leave, or did you want to leave?” Grace said “I wouldn’t say that I wanted to leave, I felt like it was the right time for me to leave.”

“I’ll be honest, I’ve had a problem with you for a long time because I felt like you were capitalizing on tragedies,” said Norton.

“I help find missing people. I help solve unsolved homicides,” Grace responded, and the interview grew tense, before returning to what Norton then described as “capitalizing on dead kids.” Grace repeated that her show was dedicated to finding missing people and solving unsolved homicides, then declared “oops, I think our time is up” and walked out.
