Editor's Note: After last night's AC360°, we received an overwhelming amount of comments about the announcement that Erica Hill will be leaving. Viewers offered her their well wishes but are disappointed they will no longer see her as she is “intelligent, well-informed, witty, good-natured” and “perfectly paired” with Anderson. We agree and we'll miss her very much. We also heard from many of you, on all sides, about Fran Townsend's comments on homeland security. What do you think? Let us know!
Anderson- Nice to Have That "Inside Track Knowledge" that is PRICELESS With Fran Townsend– What a Relief + a Confidence Builder for Just What The Heck is Going On in this WAR In Which The U.S. is Involved!! I'm Holding My Breath till the End of the Show for the Anderson/Erica "ANNOUNCEMENT!"
OH NO! We are so unhappy Eric Hill is leaving. The chemistry she had with Anderson was terrific and all other women on CNN could learn from her humor and subtlety and "realness."
Oh Anderson! Say it isn't so! Erica leaving??!! ... Offer her more money, more air time, whatever it takes to keep her on AC360! The chemistry and friendship between the 2 of you shines so brightly, I look forward to it each evening. I will surely miss her on your program, but best wishes and Godspeed Erica. CBS couldn't be luckier.
ANDERSON! Why is Erica leaving? You have got to be kidding me man, the most b-e-a-utiful and entertaining anchor in cnn history is going? This cannot be true, We must have the brunette beauty alongside the silver fox or it is not ac360. I suppose wolf's sexy man beard will have to do. Keep up the good work yall.
Very sad evening; a very big piece of this show will be missing from now on.. Erica, who will make Anderson say goofy things from now on ???? Good luck on your next big adventure! WE will miss you immensely...
I am so disappointed to hear that Erica Hill is leaving. She is so intelligent, well-informed, witty and good -natured-one of my favorite aspects of 360. I wish her well in her new career but fear she is irreplaceable.
Nooooooooo! Erica Hill CANNOT be leaving AC 360! I cannot imagine the show without the two of them together! Could you not have offered her more money?!! Very sad, but she and Anderson are my favourite pair on T.V. Good luck to Erica at CBS.
