CNN’s Carol Costello Informs Viewers That Friday Will Be Her Last Day on CNN

At the end of her broadcast today, CNN anchor Carol Costello announced that Friday would be her last day with the network as she’ll be moving to California and will work for HLN.

Costello explained that the decision was personal and a big life change. Noting that she had lived apart from her husband for many years, she pointed out that it hadn’t been that bad because he also lived on the East Coast. However, he recently got a new job in Los Angeles, adding “and I kind of miss him.”

“I don’t want to get too emotional,” she told the audience. “But I will miss you too.”

CNN president Jeff Zucker commented on the news shortly after Costello’s on-air announcment.

“It’s with infinite gratitude that I thank Carol for being a friend to me,” Zucker stated. “And an influential voice that has helped grow CNN and contribute to our success.”

Zucker also noted that Ken Jautz, who is responsible for HLN, will provide more details of Costello’s role with that network over the coming weeks.
