The founder of a popular New York cafe is leaving the news channel to become a CNN anchor.
Teri Davis, a former New York Times columnist, said she will step down from her role as co-anchor of the “Newsroom” show after nearly two years at the network.
She will become a producer on the new “Inside Politics” show and work for CNN as an associate producer, CNN spokeswoman Laura McLaughlin said.
Davis, who is the daughter of the late columnist Bob Hope, will serve as cohost on the news program for the next four years.
CNN said it will also honor Davis’ contributions to the news industry and her family.
Davis is a CNN veteran who has appeared on the network’s hit news programs, including “New Day” and “Piers Morgan Tonight,” and served as its news editor from 2005 to 2016.
She was previously a columnist for the Times and was the editor-in-chief of the New York Daily News.
