CBS News senior political correspondent Jeff Greenfield is leaving the network, noting in an email to staff that he will step away from CBS at the end of April, reports TVNewser.com.
The email indicates that the decision to leave wasn’t his own, the article notes.
"While I did not initiate this decision, I think it was the right one,” he wrote in the email, the story says. Greenfield said he will write more books, following his February release of "Then Everything Changed."
Greenfield joined CBS News in 2007, marking his second stint at the network, where he had previously worked as a media commentator from 1979-1983.
