In a final sign-off, Don Lemon bids farewell to his prime-time CNN programme.
Don Lemon, the host of CNN’s prime-time news programme, left the network on Friday after more than eight years in the position.
In advance of his debut as a co-host on an upcoming morning news programme that would “debut later this year,” Lemon, who bid goodbye to “Don Lemon Tonight” in 2014, left the CNN programme. The network confirmed this last month.
Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins will serve as co-hosts on the unnamed programme, which will run from 6 to 9 a.m. EST in the current “New Day” time slot.
According to CNN, “New Day” anchors John Berman and Brianna Keilar will stay on until the show’s premiere before moving on to new positions with the network.
As he reflected on his show, Lemon informed the audience, “It’s not farewell, but it is definitely the end of an era.”
Lemon reflected on a number of episodes from his show, including his coverage of the 2014 Ferguson protests, the Jan. 6 attack, and an emotional rendition of “You Send Me” after Aretha Franklin’s passing.
Lemon referred to the program’s finale as a “bittersweet moment,” although he did not use the word “sad.”
Lemon described the programme as being “exhausting sometimes because some of the topics that we discuss here are so personal and all-consuming.” “Sometimes, all I could do was just smile and get to the commercial break sometimes,” Lemon said.
I’ll just say goodnight and hope to see you soon. “So I hope I made you proud, and I thank you for listening in all these years. I hope that you’re going to join me in the mornings.”
