HLN Observations: Meade, Lui and Roberts

Robin Meade will be performing and emceeing Jim Brickman's Summer Musicfest on Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio. Click here for more information and how to purchase tickets.

Robin will also be appearing in Nashville, Tennessee at this month's Puddle Palooza Concert on August 21st. In an E-Mail to us, Meade said: "This is a fundraiser benefit to bring attention to the public that the businesses near Opryland area are up and running, post flood. Check out the list of performers. I’m very honored to be among them!" Click here for tickets and information.

After our tweet about Richard Lui's move from HLN to MSNBC, it is was officially confirmed on Monday. Lui begins there August 30th.

Last week, HLN's most senior anchor Chuck Roberts signed off for the last time. Roberts was one of the longest-serving anchors among the CNN networks and anchored weekday Headline News (now HLN) broadcasts since the network's debut as CNN2 on New Year's Day, 1982. Below you'll find a video of Christi Paul's announcement of his departure and his last words.

I worked with Chuck in the 1980's and I have to say he's a class act and a true pro. He will be missed and this is a huge loss for HLN. Too bad for us viewers...
