Thomas Roberts leaving HLN

I'm sad to pass on the news that Thomas Roberts is leaving the CNN family. I've always liked him and was bummed when they relegated him to substitute anchor. I really hope that someone utilizes him better than CNN did. They are loosing someone that I think is quite popular and I'm sure they'll end up regretting is pretty soon.

Here's the official news from TV Newswer:

"Headline 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?"

Sad to see him leave but think he is making the right choice, in fact I think most of the CNN HLN cast should leave, not for the same reasons but to boost CNN ratings. CNN has become gross and bios, This is to say goodbye to CNN for me! Scott
