Rachel Crane, an innovation and space correspondent for CNN, is leaving the news organization.

Crane created original video content, including the original series, “City of Tomorrow,” which highlights innovations in cities around the world, and “Elon Evolution,” which explores the greatest problems plaguing the globe with Elon Musk.

She previously spent time covering breaking news as a general correspondent for CNN, covering the travel ban and a terrorist attack, before returning to focusing on  space and innovation.

She came to CNN from Bloomberg, where she was a technology and innovation correspondent. In that role, Crane served as host and producer of “Bloomberg Brink,” a show highlighting cutting-edge technology and new ideas, and “The Next Space Race,” taking viewers through the space exploration industry.

She is a graduate of Princeton University with a bachelor’s degree in religious studies. She also received a master’s degree in news and documentary film from New York University.
