Kathleen Parker has exited CNN's primetime talk show Parker/Spitzer, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
In early October, Parker and Eliot Spitzer, the former New York governor, launched Parker/Spitzer to fledging ratings. Spitzer will remain in the timeslot, hosting a new show called In the Arena. E.D. Hill and Will Cain will also appear on the program.
CNN says the exit was a mutual decision between Parker and the network. In a statement, Parker said that "with the show going in a new direction, it is a good time to move on."
"I wish Kathleen all the best in continuing on with her spectacular career," Spitzer said in a statement. "It has been a joy working with her as a teammate, and I continue to be a huge fan of the wisdom that jumps from her written work and the wit, charm and insight she brings to all that she does."
