CNN TV personality Don Lemon is moving on from his prime-time CNN show on weeknights, and will co-anchor the network’s revamped morning show with Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins, reports The Wrap.

The new morning show, which debuts later this year with a new name, format and set, ends “Don Lemon Tonight” after being on the air for eight years.

In a statement, Lemon said, “The last eight years have been an incredible ride. I’ve had the opportunity to work with one of the best show teams in the business, but it’s time to shake things up. I was honestly floored when Chris Licht asked me to do this and I’m honored by his belief in me. It’s going to be a thrill to take on this challenge with Poppy and Kaitlan. I’ll get to work with two of my dearest friends. Set your alarms folks, because we’re going to have a lot of fun.”…..

Another cast member of Saturday Night Live is bidding adieu to the show. Variety reports that Chris Redd has decided to leave after appearing five seasons on the late-night sketch comedy show, following the exodus of more cast members than ever ahead of the 48th season.

Redd said in a statement, “Being a part of ‘SNL’ has been the experience of a lifetime. Five years ago, I walked into 30 Rock knowing that this was an amazing opportunity for growth. Now, with friends who have become family and memories I will will cherish forever, I’m grateful to Lorne Michaels and to the entire ‘SNL’ organization. From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank you all enough.”

Redd gained notoriety for his impression of Mayor Eric Adams. He also shared an Emmy Award for his work co-writing “Come Back Barack,” a song that lamented former President Barack Obama leaving office…….
