Don Lemon is officially separating from CNN for good after the network ousted him last year.

According to The Wrap , the former prime time host agreed to a separation deal of approximately $24.5 million, which would be the complete payment from his final contract.

As OK! previously reported, Lemon, 57, who hosted the morning show alongside Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow , made headlines when he called Nikki Haley past “her prime” on television , sparking backlash from others, including his coworkers.

Don Lemon was axed from CNN in April 2023. mega

After being taken off the air, the network let him go.

“Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years . We wish him well and will be cheering him on in his future endeavors,” they said in a statement at the time. By Stacey Sanderson,

Biden Holds Off 'Uncommitted' Protest Vote And Other Michigan Primary Takeaways

Biden Holds Off ‘Uncommitted’ Protest Vote And Other Michigan Primary Takeaways

Joe Biden

President Joe Biden handily won the Michigan primary Tuesday night, but still faced protest votes over his handling of the war in Gaza.

Critics of the president have protested the Israel-Hamas war across the state, which is home to a large Arab American population. However, it remains unclear if the “uncommitted” ballot option Tuesday, which organizers urged Democratic voters to choose to send a message to Washington, will garner enough votes to earn any delegates at the party’s national convention this summer.

On the Republican side, former President Donald Trump again romped, easily beating former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Haley, though, showed once again that a hard-to-ignore minority of Republicans aren’t thrilled about the prospects of a third consecutive Trump nomination.

Shannon Sharpe, ESPN Agree To New Contract; Will Continue To Appear On 'First Take'

Shannon Sharpe, ESPN Agree To New Contract; Will Continue To Appear On ‘First Take’

Shannon Sharpe

After getting his feet wet debating Stephen A. Smith during the NFL season, Shannon Sharpe is staying with ESPN for at least a few more months.

The network announced Sharpe has signed a new deal that will keep him as a regular contributor on First Take through the end of the NBA regular season.

The first act for Sharpe after signing a new deal with ESPN was coaching against Smith in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game as part of All-Star Weekend on Friday night. Team Shannon defeated Team Stephen A. thanks to Micah Parsons’ MVP performance.

The Dallas Cowboys star had 37 points and 16 rebounds in a 100-91 victory for Team Shannon.

Sharpe originally joined the show in September where he was a weekly guest on Mondays and Tuesdays during the NFL season. He had been an analyst on FS1’s Undisputed, alongside Skip Bayless, since it debuted in 2016.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer cited “disrespect” from Bayless that dates back to an on-air debate they had about Tom Brady in December 2022 as the reason he left FS1.

Things seem to be going better for Sharpe at ESPN. He’s been a featured analyst on First Take with Smith and Molly Qerim, while also continuing to host the Club Shay Shay podcast.

University of Florida Supreme Court Appoints 25-Year-Old Britney Deas As Its First Black Woman As Chief Justice

University of Florida Supreme Court Appoints 25-Year-Old Britney Deas As Its First Black Woman As Chief Justice

Britney Deas

In a historic move, the University of Florida (UF) Supreme Court has appointed Britney Deas as its first Black woman chief justice.

At just 25 years old, Deas, a Haitian UF Levin College of Law student, has shattered barriers and made waves in her career path, marking a significant milestone for representation and diversity within the university’s legal system.

Deas, a native Floridian who hails from Miami and currently resides in Gainesville, received the groundbreaking news via email, sparking a moment of joy and accomplishment.

The announcement, made on Jan. 31, 2024, coincided with the onset of Black History Month, adding a deeper layer of significance to her achievement.

Reflecting on the importance of Black history and representation, Deas emphasized that her appointment serves as a testament to the enduring legacy of African Americans and their contributions to American society.

“Black history is American history,” she remarked, underscoring the need for ongoing recognition and celebration of Black achievements.

Having joined the UF Supreme Court as an associate justice in Spring 2023, Deas set her sights on the role of chief justice, a goal she realized in a remarkably short period. Now entrusted with new responsibilities, she is committed to upholding the principles of justice and fairness while serving as a beacon of inspiration for future generations.

Prior to her current position, Deas made history at the University of South Florida (USF) as the first Black woman to serve as student body president, breaking down barriers and paving the way for increased representation in student leadership roles. By Gee NY
