Why is Poppy Harlow leaving CNN?

On August 17, Harlow announced she will be taking a hiatus from CNN to pursue a master’s degree.

“Starting next week, I will be taking a break from being with you every morning on this show so that I can go back to school. Yes, school!” Harlow said on the air.

“I’m going to study law for a Master’s degree. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. And if this year and a half has taught me anything, it is, why not try!”

According to Variety, Harlow will be pursuing Yale Law School’s one-year Master of Studies in Law, which it noted is a program for students who do not wish to become lawyers but want to learn more about legal studies and apply the law to the work they do.

“I’m here to stay for good as a journalist, but I wanted to learn more about the law,” Harlow told the outlet.

“I really felt that over the last year and a half. This is a dream that has been delayed, but it doesn’t have to disappear.”

Harlow said her father and studying the law will be her way of feeling closer to him.

However, she will not be completely gone from the network during her studies, telling viewers of the network that they “will see me when I don’t have class. You will see me filling in wherever they need me.”

She said she hopes the law course “can be additive to everything I do on a daily basis here, making a little bit of difference, and that’s not a bad thing.”
