Christi Paul è l’ultima conduttrice a salutare la CNN. La star lascia la rete in un momento piuttosto critico, poiché la società di notizie ha perso un paio di stelle di alto profilo nei mesi che hanno preceduto l’uscita di Paul. I riflettori si sono accesi sulla CNN quando, nel dicembre 2021, Chris Cuomo è stato licenziato dopo che è stato affermato di aver aiutato suo fratello, l’ex governatore di New York, Andrew Cuomo, tra accuse di molestie. “Chris Cuomo è stato sospeso all’inizio di questa settimana in attesa di un’ulteriore valutazione delle nuove informazioni emerse sul suo coinvolgimento nella difesa di suo fratello”, ha affermato la CNN in una nota. “Ci siamo affidati a uno studio legale rispettato per condurre la revisione e lo abbiamo licenziato con effetto immediato”. La rete di notizie ha anche affermato che ulteriori informazioni sono state scoperte durante le indagini e la CNN ha promesso che avrebbe continuato a indagare su questo, nonostante Chris se ne fosse andato.

Then, in February, CNN was thrust back into the spotlight when the network's President, Jeff Zucker, stepped down over a relationship he had with an employee that he failed to disclose. "As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo's tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years. I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn't," he said in a statement. "I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today."

But why is Paul now saying goodbye?

Christi Paul's big move

Christi Paul leaving CNN isn't shrouded in the controversy we saw with Chris Cuomo and Jeff Zucker's exits. Instead, Paul explained on June 26 that she was leaving "New Day," where she's presented weekend shows for close to a decade, to move back home to Ohio. "I am part of the Great Resignation," she said, explaining she'd experienced some tough times in the months that led up to her leaving, including her husband catching Covid which was so severe she thought she could become a single mom. Paul also made it clear there was no bad blood with her CNN co-anchors, telling viewers, "I love these people, I love this place. And I am so tired. I'm so exhausted. I just could just not be who I need to be for my family. I'm tired of being tired." It's not clear where Paul will head next for work, though she told fans she expected to still be on TV in Ohio.

Paul's big news came a few days after she posted a pretty telling quote on Instagram. On June 21, she shared the words, "I think we're all exhausted from feeling judged. I also think we have the power to change that." She captioned it by writing, "Pledge: I will do all I can to leave people feeling happier & more valued than when I found them. Because every second, we get to choose what comes out of our mouths. Who's with me?"
