CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin announced she is leaving the network after working there for 13 long years. The longtime CNN Newsroom anchor said that she is planning to take a break from the news and focus on her upcoming book, Huddle, due in April 6. She will exit in mid-April.

Baldwin also went on to claim that she doesn’t have a job lined up right now and expressed saying that she is feeling “very vulnerable” but she’s also excited about the future. “I will be leaving CNN in April.” she said, thanking the viewers and colleagues for their support. “I came to this network in 2008,” she said adding “I scribbled my name on a Post-It note and stuck it outside of this temporary office, determined to fulfil my dream of becoming a full-time CNN correspondent.”

“I wanted to be part of the best of the best in cable news and journalism. And as a native Atlantan, this would be my hometown team. Little did I know… I would not only go on to fulfill that dream, I’d flourish in this environment and land my own two-hour show at the age of 31,” Baldwin posted an overwhelming video on Twitter. She further added saying that “the next chapter of my life will be focused on what I love the most about my work: amplifying the lives of extraordinary Americans and putting my passion for storytelling to good use.” She also said that “I don’t have a job I’m jumping right into” — she is working on a book — but “I am so excited about what is to come.” Her upcoming book is about women “unlocking their collective power.”

Brooke Baldwin is a Peabody Award finalist and News Emmy nominee.

Last year, she had contracted COVID-19 and the network took her show off the air for weeks. During that time she made the decision to release day-to-day battle in a “coronavirus diary” for the network and social media.
