Shocker! Don Lemon is Leaving ‘CNN Tonight’ A Show He’s Hosted Since 2014 / VIDEO

Ellie Awards 2018

Dang. Talk about freaking people out (and making some his haters very happy). We’re referring to the reaction to Don Lemon‘s announcement that Friday night was the “last night” of him hosting “CNN Tonight,” the show he’s helmed since 2014. However, in a later Twitter video, he clarified that he was not leaving the network.

Yep, Lemon shownuff shocked folks by ending his news show Friday with a closing on-air segment in which he suddenly revealed the end of his program on the network.

“It’s been really, really great. This is the last night that will be ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.’” the 55-year-old newscaster said. “So, I appreciate all the years of ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon,’ but changes are coming, and I will fill you in.”

Lemon then segued into a promo for a CNN documentary about Marvin Gaye’s 1971 album, “What’s Going On.”

But then, less than 15 minutes after the show went off the air, however, Lemon posted a 24-second video on Twitter clarifying his announcement.

“So I got back down to my office after the show — everybody calm down,” he said. “I didn’t say I was leaving CNN. I just said it was the end of an era for ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon’.

“I am not leaving CNN,” Lemon added, “so you will have to tune in Monday at 10 o’clock to see. That’s it. So relax, I’m not leaving.” After breaking out in laughter, Lemon repeated, “I’m not leaving.”

OK, you and probably everybody else is wondering “what’s going on,” to quote Marvin Gaye. Unfortunately, we still don’t know ’cause as of this posting, CNN reps had not returned requests for comment.

2 Problems with this Don Lemon "announcement"...

#1. Don Lemon was very vague on-air when he made the annoucement at the end of his show. when he said this was the last night for ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.’, he then said. “So, I appreciate all the years of ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon,’ but changes are coming, and I will fill you in.” he should've then said that he WAS NOT leaving CNN...a great way for him to stir the pot and set social media worldwide on fire with people putting their own rumor theories out there. After that, Lemon then segued into a promo for a CNN documentary about Marvin Gaye’s 1971 album, “What’s Going On.”, a show HE produced.

Then 15 minutes after the show, he posts a video a video on Twitter saying “everybody calm down...I didn’t say I was leaving CNN. I just said it was the end of an era for ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon’...No Don, you didn't say ANYTHING. You should have also told your audience that you were not leaving CNN, and to watch on Monday night at 10pm ET to get a clarifed update on what will be going on in this timeslot and my future on CNN...THAT'S HOW YOU INFORM YOUR AUDIENCE DON! For a news veteran, you made a big rookie mistake and made the moment about yourself at CNN-you're not Larry King bro!

To tell your fans on Twitter "So relax, I’m not leaving.”, then breaking out in laughter and repeat, “I’m not leaving.” was very unprofessional. It was a perfect example of what social media and the All About Me culture has done. For someone like myself who has worked in NYC radio, national media and the entertainment business or 30+ years, I lost a lot of respect for Don Lemon Friday night.

It's just like Don Lemon-he's gotta make it all about him SMH...

If I was Jeff Zucker or Don Lemon's boss at CNN, I would be pissed at the stupid move he did on-air and on social media.

#2. I've got a problem with you, the subject line of your email blast, you said "Don Lemon leaving CNN"...No, he is not leaving CNN (so he says), but he is ending his CNN Tonight show and will give an update Monday at 10pm ET on what's going on with him at CNN and in that timeslot moving forward...that's what you should've put in the subject line. But folks like you, MediaTakeout, TMZ and other "media" blogs who occasionally post real news don't put up the real full headline-just half of it to make it just salacious enough for people to click on your site and check out whatever "news" you's the old social media clickbait 101 trick SMH...

I think I made my point...You guys, like the Don Lemons and the Gayle Kings of the world, need to do better...'NUFF SAID.
