“I will certainly be back in front of the camera soon and I look forward to announcing my next on-air role in the near future.”

“For 16 years, Shaun Robinson has been an integral part of the success of Access Hollywood,” said Rob Silverstein, executive producer of Access Hollywood. “Shaun has a tremendous ability to put stars at ease and always has had a special connection with our viewers. We wish Shaun success and happiness as she moves into this new, exciting phase of her career.”
