CNN Senior Political Analyst Kirsten Powers Exits Network After 7-Year Run

By A.J. Katz 

CNN senior political analyst Kirsten Powers announced on her Instagram page yesterday evening that she is no longer with the network after a seven-year run.

After sharing the news of her exit, she added, “In honor of my departure I thought I’d share a round up of ‘best of’ KP faces.

I would be a terrible poker player 😂 but I brought my most authentic self to the table and did my best to serve the viewers and try and make sense of our increasingly out of control political world.”
