Update: Lou Dobbs to Quit CNN

Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, plans to announce Wednesday that he is leaving the network, two network employees said.

A CNN executive confirmed that Mr. Dobbs will announce his resignation plans on his 7 p.m. program. His resignation is effective immediately; tonight’s program will be his last on CNN. His contract was not set to expire until the end of 2011.

Mr. Dobbs informed his staff members of his intentions in a meeting Wednesday afternoon. He did not immediately respond to a telephone call seeking comment.

Well known for his political positions, Mr. Dobbs is an outlier at CNN, which has sought to position itself as a middle ground of sorts in the fractious cable news arena. Perhaps hinting at plans for an exit from CNN, Mr. Dobbs met with Roger Ailes, the chairman of the Fox News Channel, last month. At the time Mr. Dobbs was viewed as a potential hire for the Fox Business Network.

A Fox spokesperson said Wednesday, “We have not had any discussions with Lou Dobbs for Fox News or Fox Business.”

  • I was shocked when I heard Lou make the announcement but it’s understandable. CNN is way too in-the-tank with Obama and they have very low ratings as a result. Lou can do better elsewhere. It’d be cool if he could go to Fox where he’d have a bigger audience but it’s hard to imagine a time slot he could squeeze into except Shepherd Smith’s. Maybe he’ll take a break from broadcasting and write a book or maybe do talk radio. Anything is possible.

  • Dobbs would be an excellent Independent candidate for some sort of public office. The country is more in sync with his views than with those of the Dem leadership, more so each day.

  • Robin in Texas -

    Did you hear that Obama, Congress and Senate. Lou Dobbs doesn’t care for your change and lack of representation.
    Here in Texas, that’s a B*tchsl*p. But y’all didn’t feel it because the koolaid is numbing. Better sober up and take notice!

  • CNN will miss Lou Dobbs much more than he will miss them. I do not know if he would go over to Fox but it could be a option. Maybe Fox will cut loose Geraldo, there is no love loss between them.

    Lou is now unleashed from the strings of the msm much like Sarah was when she left. Both of them have much to contribute in politics or any field they which to pursue.

    Good luck to Lou, you were too good for CNN and I also have no reason to watch anymore either.

  • letty aka granny gripes -

    have to wonder

    Lou gets shot at

    Seiu, Acorn sent with wires to threaten the Executives who were to get a bonus

    Conservative democrats get threatening letters, emails, calls and personal visits

    Hate Rush Campaign

    Threats at Glenn Beck,

    Fox attacks

    SIDE NOTE: NOW we hear OBAMA crawled over broken glass to have FOX do an interview with him: Not enough videos of himself to watch every night.

  • can't touch this -

    Dobbs/Palin 2012! Yes indeed it sure does sound like he’s going to run for office. I remember listening to his radio show every day during the primary. He’s no kool aid drinker. Far from it. Hate to say it but he can’t stand liar obama.
    The elitists that control obama, congress the media and the banks to pad their deep pockets will no longer control Lou Dobbs. He’s going to run for office. Let’s place bets.
    check this out.

  • I viewed that before, can’t touch this…I am not sure what a flaming statue of Obama is supposed to mean? He’s a burning man? What is it supposed to mean – like if he was in Hell?

  • Lou Dobbs will be on O’Reilly Monday night. Also Sarah Pailin’s interview will air on O’Reilly on Thurs 19th, Fri. 20th, and Mon 23rd.
