Christiane Amanpour is “ending her part-time stint at CBS’ 60 Minutes’ because the arrangement had ‘run its course,'” the AP reports. She is not seeking a renewal of her contract. (Did they want her to?) “People close to her have said she’s concerned that the type of hard-hitting international stories she’s done are not valued as much at 60 Minutes as they were under founding executive producer Don Hewitt.”

> Update: 3:18am: “Sources said Amanpour had sought a full-time job at the show, which wasn’t a possibility,” Variety reports.
