BREAKING: Judy Woodruff To Leave CNN

JW 2004sittingdown.jpg.jpgFrom perhaps CNN’s most famous face this morning:

“To my colleagues and friends at CNN:

“I’ve decided to leave daily journalism after 30 years, 12 of them at this network. I’ve had challenging and exciting opportunities, been supported by an amazing and talented group of people, and made lifelong friends. I wish them the very best. I’m discussing several long-form projects in television. I’ll also teach, do some writing and be an occasional consultant and contributor to CNN.

“To all of you at CNN who have been so wonderful to me, I can’t begin to thank you adequately. But thank you. We will stay in touch and we’ll always have memories of good journalism, good times and a few laughs together.”

As an insider said in horror just now, referencing the end of the Brokaw/Rather/Jennings/Koppel/Woodruff era: “What’s happening to this business?”
