D.L. Hughley's comedy show on CNN, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News, is ending as the comedian assumes new responsibilities for the cable channel, CNN announced on Thursday. In a statement, the network said, "D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives. To accommodate this, we agreed upon a new role where he will be a contributor for the network based in Los Angeles. We are eager to continue our relationship with D.L., who is a tremendous talent and a valued colleague." No finale date has been set, but the show, which debuted last fall, will continue airing through this month.
