CNN Veteran Brooke Baldwin Departs After 11 Years

CNN is seeing one of its veteran hosts depart network. Last Friday marked the end of Brooke Baldwin’s tenure as the host of “CNN Newsroom.”

Baldwin provided an emotional farewell as she said goodbye to the show that she’s hosted for over a decade. Baldwin detailed the early days of the program and how she received the position. Furthermore, the CNN anchor thanked her fans and colleagues for pushing her over the years.

“Let me let you in on a little secret: This job, my show here on CNN, was not originally supposed to be mine,” Baldwin said.

“More than a decade ago, there was an anchor — suddenly departed CNN, leaving this gaping hole in the afternoons. The then-bosses quickly turned to me, and they were like, ‘Brooke, we’re going to need you to keep the seat warm, just for a week, until we actually find the person who will take over this show.’ OK, well, guess what? I have kept this seat warm for nearly 11 years.”

Baldwin revealed that she would be departing CNN in February and adds that her next venture will be releasing an upcoming book, “Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power,” later this month.
