Lisa Desjardins parts with CNN

CNN’s Capitol Hill reporter, Lisa Desjardins, has left CNN. She previously served as CNN Radio’s Capitol Hill correspondent, and then in July 2013, she joined CNN. Although she didn’t get much air-time, Lisa did a lot of off-air reporting as well as political reporting on CNN.com.

UPDATE (8-29 11:30aET) — Lisa posted a goodbye video and confirms CNN let her go:
