Current TV and its lineup of hosts continue to tinker in advance of Al Jazeera’s takeover in a few months. While we noted that many of the network’s hosts aren’t entirely sure what the future holds for them, Eliot Spitzer has: he is leaving.
Brian Stelter in the NY Times has more:
Mr. Spitzer said he had a “wonderful time” at Current, but emphasized that his relationship was with Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, Current’s co-founders, not with Al Jazeera. “Moving forward, their mission will be different,” he said — more international newscasts, less liberal talk about the news…
“I love and always have loved policy issues and trying to have an impact on the issues that are out there,” he said. “I cherish my years in government. I have loved my participation at CNN, at Current; writing; teaching. Where I will go next, I will have to sort out.”
Spitzer declined to answer whether he was weighing a return to public office, though he will continue to appear as a weekly commentator on NY1’s “Inside City Hall.”
