Brooke Baldwin Announces Departure From CNN In Mid-April – Deadline

Longtime CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin announced her surprise resignation from the cable news network on-air today, telling viewers that she’s leaving in April to focus on “amplifying the lives of extraordinary Americans and putting my passion for storytelling to good use.”

“Before we get going, I want to start with some personal news,” Baldwin said at the start of her 3 p.m. ET show. “I will be leaving CNN in April.”

She continued: “Let me back up. After most of my 20s working my way up in local news, I came to this network in 2008 – in the midst of the Great Recession as a freelancer. I remember I scribbled my name on a Post-It note and stuck it outside of this temporary office, determined to fulfilling my dream of becoming a full-time CNN correspondent.”
