It seems fitting that her last broadcast with CNN was also dominated by a breaking story – the Minnesota bridge collapse.
During the hand off between The Situation Room and Paula Zshn Now, Wolf Blitzer commended Zahn on her work at CNN.
At the end of the broadcast, they showed a great retrospective of her time at CNN.
And of course, Larry King had a few kind words to say to Zahn.
Two of her children were in the studio with her tonight (hiding behind a few computer screens on set.) Here are some of Zahn's final words as she signed off:
I came here in 2001 determined to report the news honestly, accurately, and without biased. ... I hope you have found this program interesting, useful, and fair. I hope I served you well. Again, thank you so much for the privilege of being welcomed into your home. Thank you for trusting me to bring you the news.
Professional and classy right up to the end. We wish her the best of luck!
Can you name this CNN journalist?
Post your guess in the comments. The identity of the Mystery Journalist will be revealed in Sunday night's post.
Wait a minute- it's not Friday, yet! Well, no, it's not. We've shuffled the schedule a little bit this week & Sapphire will be posting tomorrow night about the Minnesota bridge collapse coverage. I'll be back on Sunday night. Have a great weekend!
