February 22, 2010

Gerri Willis, the personal finance editor for CNN, is leaving the cable network after seven years, reports Kevin Allocca of TVNewser.

Allocca writes, “CNN tells us, ‘Gerri is leaving to explore other opportunities. After 7 years at CNN, she felt it was time for a change. We wish her all the best.’

“Willis has appeared on a variety of programs across the CNN, CNNI, and HLN family, including CNN’s ‘American Morning,’ since she began with the network in March of 2003, when she came over from her post at Smart Money magazine.

“In January of 2009, she began anchoring her own weekend program on CNN titled, ‘Your Bottom Line.'”
