What a day at CNN.
CNN confirms that political contributors James Carville and Mary Matalin are leaving the channel. TVNewser has also confirmed that Erick Erickson will be leaving CNN and joining Fox News as a contributor.
Our sister blog FishbowlDC first had the scoop.
Carville and Matalin have been political contributors and hosts at CNN for the better part of 20 years, while Erickson joined the channel in March of 2010. The network still has a slew of political contributors, including Paul Begala, Ari Fleischer and Donna Brazile, though the impact had by the DC power couple cannot be overstated.
