Popular CNN weekend anchorman T.J. Holmes is leaving the network for reasons that are unclear.
The news was picked up by The Huffington Post here, citing a previous story from the TV Newser Web site that published an internal e-mail from CNN announcing his exit. The e-mail gave no reason for Holmes leaving, and actually congratulated him for doing so.
The Huffington Post story said it was Holmes who decided to leave — again, without citing a reason (at least publicly). “Please join me in congratulating TJ Holmes who will be leaving the company at the end of the year to pursue other opportunities,” said the internal memo from a CNN exec. “Since 2006, we’ve had [the] pleasure [of working] alongside him as he anchored ‘CNN Newsroom’ and reported stories from throughout the world. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
