Lou Dobbs to Leave CNN After Tonight’s Show
CNN host Lou Dobbs told The New York Times this evening that he is leaving the cable news channel effective immediately.
“Some leaders in the media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond my role here at CNN and engage in constructive problem-solving,” Mr. Dobbs said just after 7 p.m., suggesting that he would remain involved in the civic discourse, but perhaps not on television.
“I’m considering a number of options and directions,” Mr. Dobbs added.
Wednesday’s program will be his last on CNN, one of his employees said earlier in the evening.
