Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly Bid Farewell to CNN This Morning 

CNN This Morning anchors Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly signed off their final show on Friday. “We’re both incredibly proud,” these were their final words in the show. 

The popular news agency and channel CNN announced a big shakeup to their early morning schedule this month. It has almost destroyed the morning show that Chris Licht launched as his biggest move to CNN. 

Now, as per the new arrangements, the current hosts Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly will have new roles as Kasie Hunt takes over a new, shorter version of CNN This Morning from 5 am to 7 am. CNN’s another news program CNN News Central will take over the rest of the morning from 7 am to 10 am. 

Here is how Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly concluded the show. 

Harlow said, “Somehow, in some remarkable way, I am the problem here. You guys have seemed to manage to keep me, mainly me, on time, in the right place at the right time.” She added, “No surprise, Phil is early all the time and I am running in at the last minute. But seriously, guys, we would literally be nowhere without you.” Poppy also mentioned his humor, “All while managing to crack the best jokes at the perfect time in every commercial break. As a viewer, you do not get to see these folks.” 

Harlow continued, “They are the real deal. They make it happen. You have seen their work every single morning. You and we are better for it. You are the best partner in the world, Phill Mattingly. We will see you all soon. That is it for us. Have a great weekend.” 

At the same time his partner Mattingly expressed 

“And before we go, a quick point of personal privilege, as the folks we cover on Capitol Hill might say. And the word “privilege” here, I think, is particularly apt, because that’s what it has been every day and night and very early morning to work with our extraordinary team here. To our directors, our producers, bookers, editors, writers, APs, PAs, you are the heart and soul of something for which we are both incredibly proud.” 

He added, “Your immeasurable talents have infused every show. Your good humor, your smiles have filled every morning, and the fact that you were willing to share that with both of us while working, let’s charitably call them less than ideal hours. That’s a testament to your character and explains our shared and unyielding belief in your limitless futures.” 

This is how Poppy Harlow and Phil Mattingly concluded their final and favorite morning show.
