Later, after seeing comments on social media about his announcement, Lemonwho joined the network in 2006responded, "I didn't say I was leaving CNN, I just said it was the end of an era for CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. I'm not leaving CNN, so you will have to tune in Monday [May 17] at 10 o'clock to see. That's it. So relax. I'm not leaving. I'm not leaving."

Also according to USA Today, Lemon and fellow CNN news personality Chris Cuomo are launching their own podcast, "The Handoff," on Apple Podcasts this month. Unlike their TV appearances, the podcast will be teleprompter-free and include candid conversations between Cuomo and Lemon.
Recently, Lemon revealed to Tamron Hall that he and fiance Tim Malone are looking to start a family through adoption or surrogacy in the coming years.
