Valerie Morris is leaving CNN after 11 years of financial reporting and anchoring. In an e-mail to colleagues, Morris says:
“I was offered a new, two year contract by CNN but I’ve known for some time since CNNfn went off the air that my passion truly is financial literacy — especially for women and people of color — two segments of the population for whom there needs to be a consistent and deliberate message about how to get into the wealth-building game. That’s my purpose.”
She’ll be anchoring a syndicated weekly program, with details to be announced in about two weeks.
