Star Anchor Don Lemon to Leave CNN

From a New York Times story by Michael M. Grynbaum. John Koblin, and Benjamin Mullin headlined “Don Lemon, CNN Star Anchor, to Leave the Network”:

Don Lemon is out at CNN.

CNN said that it was parting ways with Mr. Lemon, a star anchor who was a fixture of the network’s prime-time lineup before enduring a short but controversial tenure as a morning show co-host.

“CNN and Don have parted ways,” the network said. “Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years. We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors.”
