Jennifer Granholm to Leave al-Gorezeera

Detroit Free Press:

LANSING — Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has announced she will soon be leaving Current TV and her public affairs program “The War Room” following the purchase of the cable network by Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab news giant financed by the government of Qatar.

“We were told today that Al Jazeera is the buyer for Current TV,” Granholm said in a posting on her Facebook page late Wednesday.

“My agreement with Current was for the duration of the election (and the sale). It has been a very fun adventure; we are blessed with a wonderful team. We’ll continue to broadcast The War Room for the next few weeks through the transition, but after that I’ll be going back to teaching, speaking and other things.”
