Carol Lin Says Goodbye To CNN

lindec31.jpgCarol Lin said goodbye to her viewers during the last segment of CNN Newsroom Saturday night.

Above the banner “Carol on the Move,” CNN aired a retrospective package of Lin’s career at CNN, an e-mailer says. “It included highlights of her reporting from Kosovo, 9/11, Katrina relief, and a couple of interviews.”

Then she said:

“Nearly four years ago I just wanted a good war to cover and a chance to tell your story. Well be careful what you wish for — I had Kosovo, the Middle East, Afghanistan, and 9/11. And then there was the unexpected battle — and the one that I lost — my husband’s cancer.

So it’s time I tell his story and mine. So many people have asked me, ‘What’s next?’ Well one of the projects is a blog book that will serve as an online investigation into out health care system — who gets the cures and who doesn’t — and the heroes who held our hands.”
