CNN’s Candy Crowley is leaving the network, numerous sites reported on Friday. Jordan Chariton reported for TheWrap with a statement from CNN’s president Jeff Zucker. It reads, in part:
Candy made her mark covering the presidential campaigns of Pat Buchanan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Howard Dean, Bob Dole, Jesse Jackson, Edward Kennedy, John Kerry, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney. And as we all remember, she made her mark yet again in 2012 when she became the first woman to moderate a presidential debate in 20 years.
Crowley got that spot after a petition led by high schoolers in New Jersey who wanted to see a woman in that seat again, Glenn Blain reported for the New York Daily News in 2012.
CNN’s Brian Stelter also tweeted the news on Friday and that there’s no news on Crowley’s successor for “State of the Union” or where she’ll go next. Read more
