Ana Cabrera, who joined CNN in 2013 and quickly rose to prominence, has decided to leave the network.
Ana Cabrera, a CNN anchor, has announced her departure from the network. She confirmed her leaving from CNN, saying, “after nearly a decade at CNN, I’m making the personal decision to explore a new professional chapter. Time to embrace new challenges and opportunities.”
Since it came out earlier this month that she was leaving, sources have said that she is looking for a position at NBCUniversal. The network won’t say anything, and Cabrera’s representatives didn’t respond to requests for comments. It is said that her leaving has nothing to do with the recent layoffs at the network.
The anchor told Variety that she still believes “in the objective” of CNN, despite her departure, but that she has “made the personal decision to explore a new professional chapter.” Cabrera said, “I’m dedicated to my work as a journalist in the next step of my career.” “But for now, I’m excited to take a break and spend more time with my family.”
