Thomas Roberts Leaves HLN

robertsmay4.jpgHeadline News anchor Thomas Roberts left CNN on May 1, TVNewser has confirmed.

“After five years, he has decided to leave us, with intentions to settle in the Washington, D.C., area,” Ken Jautz wrote in a memo on Monday.

Roberts lost his afternoon anchoring timeslot in September. His final major on-air appearance came last month, as he recounted being sexually abused by a priest for a 360 special.

Jautz’s memo said Roberts will be “pursuing new journalistic opportunities.” Is it related to this tip/question: “What Headline News anchor has inked a syndication deal?”
