Don Lemon and CNN part ways

Don Lemon and CNN part ways

CNN has actually split methods with longtime host Don Lemon. The announcement Monday came without explanation and also amazed the media sector.

” Don will certainly forever be a part of the CNN family members, and we thank him for his payments over the previous 17 years,” said CNN CEO Chris Licht in a memorandum to personnel. “We desire him well and also will be supporting him on in his future ventures.”

Lemon secured “CNN This Morning” with Poppy Harlow as well as Kaitlan Collins. The program has been on the air for virtually six months.

” We are committed to its success,” Licht said of the early morning program.

In a statement of his very own, Lemon stated his representative told him Monday morning that CNN had actually ended him.

” I am surprised,” Lemon claimed, arguing that administration did not have “the modesty” to educate him of his firing directly. “At no time was I ever before offered any sign that I would certainly not have the ability to continue to do the job I have actually liked at the network,” Lemon added

” He was offered a possibility to meet management but instead launched a declaration on Twitter,” the network stated in a declaration.

Lemon signed up with CNN in September 2006. Prior to “CNN Today,” Lemon held the prime-time program “Don Lemon Tonight” for greater than eight years. He obtained substantial popularity during the presidency of Donald Trump for his no-holds-barred discourse regarding the former president, pressing back versus his lies and also calling him a “racist.”.

He was commonly slammed for sexist remarks he made on “CNN This Morning” in February. Throughout an on-air discussion about Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s proposal that older politicians take proficiency examinations, Lemon said that the 51-year-old Haley “isn’t in her prime.”.

Lemon stated a lady is just “considered to be in their prime in 20s and 30s and possibly 40s.” Co-anchors Harlow as well as Collins pressed back, yet Lemon increased down on his factor.

Licht later on sent out a memorandum to CNN staff, calling the remarks “inappropriate.” Licht said he had a “honest” conversation with Lemon, who apologized as well as was readied to join formal training sessions.

” It is necessary to me that CNN equilibriums responsibility with … cultivating a culture in which people can own, learn and grow from their errors,” Licht stated at the time.

” When I make a mistake, I possess it,” Lemon told staff during a content conference. “As well as I own this too.”.

Previously this month, Variety published a record outlining claims of misogyny targeted at women colleagues. Lemon refuted the accusations.
