Samuel Burke announces he is leaving CNN

CNN’s near-ubiquitous technology correspondent Samuel Burke has announced he is leaving CNN Worldwide. Burke was one of CNN’s rare reporters who appeared across all of the network’s channels: CNN/US, CNN International, HLN, and CNN en Español. He reported for the network primarily out of CNN’s London and New York bureaus and also co-hosted CNN en Español’s morning program, Cafe CNN.

Writing on Instagram, he said, “Goodbye CNN,” adding, “after almost a decade, I’m going for a new and great opportunity. It has been the greatest honor of my life to be with this audience every morning.”

In addition to his many on-camera roles, he also first worked as an intern on Anderson Cooper 360, and later as a producer on Christiane Amanpour’s CNN International program, Amanpour.

“Thank you for allowing an American to be part of such a special platform. I will most both the audience, the team, and especially my tv sister [co-anchor Alejandra Oraa]] there is nothing better than the laughter we have shared for so many years,” he concluded.
