Jessica Yellin to Leave CNN (Report)

Longtime White House correspondent recently moved to domestic affairs

Jessica Yellin is set to leave CNN after six years, according to media reports.

Yellin, who joined the network from ABC, was its White House correspondent until August, when a D.C. bureau shuffle moved her to the newly created domestic-affairs beat. At the time, CNN framed this as a promotion, saying Yellin would also fill in as a substitute anchor.

Apparently, Yellin wasn't thrilled with the move, as she has reportedly split with the network she joined in 2007 as a Capitol Hill correspondent, then a national political correspondent. She's been lying low on Twitter lately; a usually frequent tweeter, she hasn't posted anything since Sept. 29.

Yellin is the second CNN correspondent to leave in two days. Ari Fleischer's departure was announced on Tuesday.
