CNN host Don Lemon shockingly reveals his CNN show is ENDING and says 'changes are coming'
DON Lemon shocked viewers last night by declaring that his show was ending.
The Louisiana-born anchor, who is one of CNN's biggest stars, made the announcement in a closing on-air segment.
Lemon said: "It’s been really, really great. This is the last night that will be ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.
"So, I appreciate all the years of ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, but changes are coming, and I will fill you in.”
"This is the last night that we'll be CNN with Don Lemon."
Lemon then segued into a promo for a CNN documentary about Marvin Gaye’s 1971 album, "What’s Going On".
But shortly after Lemon, 55, explained on Twitter after his show that he was not leaving the network — and that he'll be back on Monday.
He wrote: "Hey everyone. Not what you think. I'm not leaving CNN. Tune in for the handoff on Monday at 10pE and I'll explain."
The announcement appeared to be a tease of a new format for his show.
In a video he posted on Twitter, he said: "So I got back down to my office after the show — everybody calm down.
"I didn’t say I was leaving CNN. I just said it was the end of an era for ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon’.
"I am not leaving CNN,” Lemon added, “so you will have to tune in Monday at 10 o’clock to see. That’s it. So relax, I’m not leaving."
After breaking out in laughter, Lemon repeated, "I’m not leaving."
CNN reps did not immediately return requests for comment.
