CNN Newsroom weekend edition anchor T.J. Holmes announced on Tuesday that he is leaving the network.

The news was first reported by Richard Prince in his column. TVNewser obtained a copy of the internal memo sent to CNN staffers announcing Holmes' departure.

Holmes has not yet announced his next position. He started at CNN in 2006 and was based out of the network's Atlanta headquarters.

He was placed on The Root's 100 List in October. The magazine named him the 42nd most influential African American in the Media in 2010.
