Christian CNN Anchor bids a tearful farewell on-air as she leaves her job to prioritize her family, “I need to be fully present.”
CNN Anchor Bids Tearful Goodbye On-Air
When the pandemic happened, Christi Paul’s husband was one of those hit severely by the virus. He had to spend several weeks in the hospital, and she thought her husband wouldn’t survive.
“I thought I was going to be a single mom,” Christi said. “Especially when I had to take him to the ER.”
While on air this weekend on ‘New Day Weekend,’ the Christian anchor announced her resignation. She shared how she loved her job. However, after realizing many things during the pandemic, she had to make a tough decision. She had to leave as CNN’s anchor to put her family first.
“I love this place,” she said. “I am so grateful..” But Christi also admitted that the job made her “tired” and “exhausted.”
“We’re up between 1:00 and 2:00 every Saturday and Sunday,” she further revealed. “And I just could not be who I needed to be for my family, is what it really came down to.”
Putting Family First
Furthermore, the 9-year CNN anchor shared how she was “tired of being tired.” Hence, she had to choose her loved ones over her career. Because she stressed that nobody could ever replace her role in her family. Unlike her current job, anyone could take over, and the show would just keep going.
“Nobody else is going to be my kids’ mom,” she said in tears. “And nobody else is going to be my husband’s wife or my parents’ children, and I need to be fully present there.”
The anchor plans to head back to Ohio with her family and a new job opportunity.
