“Inside Politics” anchor Judy Woodruff announced Thursday that she will resign from CNN when her contract expires. However, she will continue to be involved with the news network she joined in 1993 after covering Washington, D.C., for “The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” and NBC News.

“I’ve decided to leave daily journalism after 30 years, 12 of them at this network,” she wrote in an e-mail to colleagues. “I’ve had challenging and exciting opportunities, been supported by an amazing and talented group of people, and made lifelong friends. I wish them the very best. I’m discussing several long-form projects in television. I’ll also teach, do some writing and be an occasional consultant and contributor to CNN.”

CNN has been exploring options for reconfiguring its political coverage, including “Inside Politics.”
