Her departure was first reported by the New York Post.

CNN friends and colleagues,
Twenty years ago I thought my television career was over, but the wonderful CNN DC Bureau Chief Bill Headline fought to give me a second chance. God bless him. It has been a wonderful ride.
From the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin to the death of Princess Diana, from the Washington snipers to Elizabeth Smart, from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Irene, I have given my all to being a journalist.
Now it is time for another phase.
There are a lot of moving parts right now, and I can’t say yet exactly how they will fit together, but I can announce that part of my time will be spent as a senior fellow at the George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute. I will be trying to help find solutions to the issues I have been reporting on since the day of the 9/11 attacks.
On a daily basis, I have tried to say thank you to those of you who have helped me get my work to air. Let me say it again…you have been great.
But indulge me if I single out those who have been most important.
For years, my closest collaborators have been the indefatigable Carol Cratty, and Mike Ahlers, master raconteur and newsman extraordinaire. They are among the finest, truest, people I have ever known. They are certainly the finest, truest, journalists.
