Carol Costello to Leave CNN for New Anchor Gig at HLN
Costello broke the news on Monday morning at the beginning of her 9 a.m. “Newsroom” stint, explaining that she made the decision to move her life and career to the West Coast for personal reasons.
“Before I thank you for joining me this morning, I would like to share a big life change with you,” Costello said. “Friday will be my last day at CNN. I’m not leaving the family though, I’ll be heading to Los Angeles to anchor a new show on HLN. This is a personal decision and it was extraordinarily difficult; it was like cutting off my left arm.”
CNN president Jeff Zucker released a statement expressing his “infinite gratitude” toward Costello and congratulating her on the new gig.
