This is a follow-up to the story published in August about Patricia Wu leaving CNN. Within the past thirty-eight hours, I have received a tip from a well-placed source, who I have agreed to keep anonymous, with knowledge on Patricia Wu’s departure from CNN International, and her morning news program CNN Newsroom Live from Hong Kong, which she co-anchored with Andrew Stevens.
The source confidently says that her agent arranged her exit from the show. They go on to say that Patricia wanted out of the show because both she and Andrew hated the sight of each other.
Many others (primarily on CNNFan) have remarked about the obvious awkwardness between the two when they anchored together, so what this source says is very believable.
And for readers of the blog who also get CNN Domestic… This is a very Chris-and-Kate scenario, isn’t it?
