This morning CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker revealed that HLN chief Scot Safon would be departing the company at the end of August, after 22 years at Turner Broadcasting. Shortly thereafter Safon sent a memo to staff explaining the decision to move on.
“This week marks my 22nd anniversary at the company, and I look back at an experience that feels both very rewarding…and very complete,” Safon wrote in the memo, which was obtained by TVNewser. “I will miss working daily with all of you. The energy that pulses through CNN Worldwide is unique, and the rhythms of a CNN or HLN day are unlike what you will find anywhere else. Most of all, the people you get to work with each day are, quite simply, wonderful. ”
He also talked about his time as the chief marketing officer at CNN, and as GM of HLN. Read the memo after the jump.
