Don Lemon apologizes for creating media frenzy after CNN announcement

CNN host Don Lemon claims he didn’t mean to create a media frenzy after suggesting he would be leaving the network.

“It’s been really, really great. This is the last night that will be ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.’” he said at the end of his Friday broadcast. “So, I appreciate all the years of ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon,’ but changes are coming, and I will fill you in.”

After inquires from shocked viewers — and the media — Lemon swiftly clarified later that evening that that would not be the case.

But he decided he couldn’t wait til Monday to clear the air.

“Didn’t mean to set the internet on fire. What I said last night was true. CNN Tonight with Don Lemon is no more. I’ll be back on Monday with my newly named show Don Lemon Tonight. See you Monday at 10pE,” Lemon said in a tweet Saturday.

Lemon, 55, has been a staple at CNN since 2006 and currently hosts a two-hour block from 10 p.m to midnight on weekdays.
