In today's post:
CNN is losing another veteran correspondent.
Congressional correspondent, Andrea Koppel, will be leaving CNN at the end of this month. She's been with CNN since 1993.
From TVNewser, Koppel's note about her departure:
Dear friends and colleagues: As some of you may have heard by now, CNN and I were unable to reach agreement on a new contract and, as a result, I'll be leaving the company at the end of the month. I want to thank David Bohrman and Jon Klein, especially, for their understanding, encouragement and support. With their leadership I know CNN will continue to be the world's news leader. I will be forever grateful to CNN and to people like Eason Jordan, Tom Johnson and the now deceased Ed Turner for giving a cub reporter her big break back in 1993. Finally, I can't leave without thanking all of you -- my talented, hard working and passionate colleagues in DC, Atlanta and NY as well as in CNN's many bureaus around the world. You are the best of the best and I hope our paths will cross again down the road .... Andrea Koppel
