First on TVNewser: CNN White House correspondent Dan Lothian is leaving the network, a CNN source confirms to TVNewser. Lothian is a ten-year veteran of the cabler, and has covered the administration for nearly five years. Previously he was with NBC News out of its Los Angeles bureau.
This is the second departure of a D.C.-based CNN correspondent in a little more than one week. TVNewser broke the story on October 9 that Jessica Yellin’s tenure at the network had come to an end.
