Morgan revealed in February that he would be leaving the network after a three-year run in primetime. His admission came a month after TheWrap exclusively reported British host's show was in trouble.

Morgan appears to be optimistic about his future, although it's not clear where he'll end up, and thanked his staff for “Three years, two months, 11 days” of hard work.

    Who in the world wrote this article? Ever done any research? The date of Morgan's last show has been set for some time now. This wasn't some last minute announcement in the tweet.
    Journalism is dying rapidly.

    Mr.
    Morgan ended his program with a well thought out goodbye. His was the
    last show I watched daily on CNN. By pointing out what was obvious to
    88% of Americans. 70 people shot in a movie theater, followed by 26
    children and teachers killed in an elementary school. Those 88% along
    with Mr. Morgan were in favor of enhanced background checks; he's right
    nothing was done about it. Every show that was specific to guns a
    banner stated the 2nd Amendment and he excluded guns for protection,
    hunting and sport. He, like many Americans are apposed to semi
    automatic weapons with magazines with extended clips. It was simply one
    programs point of view; he did not waiver under pressure, for this I
    respect him. It would have been easy after blow back to stop mentioning
    it. He did not. He stood to his opinion. I appreciated how he would
    directly take politicians on where American reporters did their usual
    coy ring around the rosie with their questions. Great celebrity
    interviews too.

    Glad he's gone
    CNN take note – I will now start watching your channel again. If he comes back on your channel with a similar show or has a producing role that allows him to push his personal agenda, I will take my viewing elsewhere.
