Lemon expressed frustration with the manner in which he says the news was delivered to him.
"After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have the decency to tell me directly," Lemon added in his tweet. "At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network. It is clear there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best."
