Embattled CNN anchor Don Lemon will return to CNN This Morning on Wednesday – but has to undertake formal training after his litany of problematic on-air comments.
According to a memo from CEO Chris Licht:
‘I sat down with Don and had a frank and meaningful conversation. He has agreed to participate in formal training, as well as continuing to listen and learn. We take this situation very seriously.’
‘It is important to me that CNN balances accountability with a fostering a culture in which people can own, learn and grow from their mistakes. To that end, Don will return to CNN This Morning on Wednesday.’
The 56-year-old was seen swimming and frolicking on the beach hours after he joined a CNN editorial call from Miami where he apologized to staff yet again for his comments
