Errol Barnett, who anchors CNN Newsroom on CNN and CNN International from 2-4am ET, posted yesterday on his Instagram that he had gotten his American citizenship.
I became a #NewUSCitizen today! 🇺🇸 While I'll always love my home country of the #UK 🇬🇧 and my father's homeland of #Jamaica 🇯🇲 it's the States that's provided me all the #opportunities of my adult life. From #UCLA to #CNN, living here has truly changed and enriched my life. You still have to work hard to take advantage of the opportunities, though. Here's to more hard work. Cheers to my fellow #Yankees! ✌🏽️
Earlier this summer, Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore referred to Barnett as the British version of CNN anchor Don Lemon.
And so, while he may still have his British accent… he is now an American.
