News anchor Don Lemon was terminated from CNN. He advised that his agent informed him about the change today. He released the following statement on Twitter: "I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN, I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. "At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network."

The beloved journalist's separation from the company is a disappointing surprise to the network's many followers. In response to Don's Tweet, CNN stated, "Don Lemon's statement about this morning's events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter." The media powerhouse's chairman Chris Licht also stated, "CNN and Don have parted ways. Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years. We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors."
