CNN national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux is leaving the network after two decades.
Malveaux, who is married to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, made the announcement to colleagues Friday that she’s leaving to pursue other endeavors and spend time with family, according to Deadline.
“After 20 years of delivering groundbreaking stories for the audiences of CNN, I’ve made the heartfelt decision to put myself and my family first and to pursue my long-desired professional passions: using storytelling to promote wellness, resiliency and social justice,” Malveaux wrote to colleagues, according to Deadline.
“While I’ve thrived on the energy from covering breaking news and politics, the rhythm of my life has shifted to the more personal. I love being a mom, and the time I have with my eight-year-old daughter is priceless. I am so thankful that my mother and daughter had a chance to develop a beautiful relationship before she passed.” (RELATED: Two More CNN Employees Depart The Network)
Malveaux said she “approached” the network in the fall of 2022 about her changing priorities and was supported.
Malveaux is just one of many familiar faces to leave the network over the past few months amid a leadership shakeup.
Brian Stelter departed the network in August after CNN announced it was canceling his show “Reliable Sources.” Chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin also announced that same month he was departing the network after 20 years for an undisclosed reason.
CNN White House correspondent John Harwood announced in September he would leave the network and did not specify any future plans and in November the network’s executive vice president of programing Michael Bass announced he was leaving.
