Ana Cabrera is leaving CNN after progressively advancing since joining the news organisation in 2013.
The anchor, who is presently in charge of CNN’s 1 p.m. hour, has verified a recent rumour that she plans to leave the network, which is supported by Warner Bros. Discovery, in order to pursue new career opportunities.
According to three sources with knowledge of the situation, she is not believed to have a new contract with any company but is anticipated to reappear at NBCUniversal after serving out a non-compete period. The 11 a.m. slot on MSNBC, which has been without a permanent host since Craig Melvin decided to concentrate more on his responsibilities at NBC’s “Today,” is one possible location.
Ana Cabrera Announces Her Exit
Executives at NBC News declined to provide interviews. Cabrera refused to give an interview request to CNN.
During her tenure at CNN, Cabrera moderated two presidential town halls and was the first to speak with Nikki Haley, a former U.S. ambassador to the UN, after a landmark vote on sanctions against North Korea. Additionally, she oversaw the coverage of the 2017 terrorist assault on London Bridge for nine hours straight.
Cabrera might join a few other CNN employees who have recently left the network for NBC News, which just hired Rebecca Kutler to supervise some of the MSNBC programming and Laura Jarrett to cover the Supreme Court. Since WarnerMedia was acquired by Discovery, CNN has been reducing expenses. It has scaled back its plans for original documentary series, abandoned its CNN+ streaming-video centre, and recently fired off personnel.
Cabrera formerly worked as an anchor at Denver’s KMGH, an ABC station. In Spokane, Washington, between 2005 and 2009, Cabrera worked as an anchor and reporter for the NBC affiliate KHQ and the FOX affiliate KAYU. As an intern at KMGH and KCNC, the CBS affiliates in Denver, Cabrera got her start in the industry.
