CNN host Lou Dobbs began his news and commentary show tonight with the announcement that he’s leaving the news network, Reuters reports. Dobbs did not say where he plans to go after he completes nearly 30 years at CNN. “For the past six months it has become increasingly clear that strong winds of change have begun buffeting this country and affecting all of us,” Dobbs said. He also has a syndicated talk show.
