Former Fox News foreign correspondent Conor Powell is freelancing with CNN — working for CNN Newsource primarily, CNN’s affiliate news service.
Powell was with Fox for nine years. He left the network almost a year ago, saying at the time, “Those of you who have spoken to me in recent months, you will understand why I am leaving FNC. To my many friends at the channel I wish you the best of luck.”
A source at the time told TheWrap he left because he was “uncomfortable with the direction of the news organization in recent months. Fewer news shows. More opinion shows. Less resources for reporters to report.”
Powell is out covering Tropical Storm Barry for CNN’s affiliates.
