Candy Crowley is exiting CNN after a 27-year run.

Network chief Jeff Zucker announced the news Friday in a staff memo that called her a “television icon” and read, in part: “Candy has let us know that she has made the decision to move on, so she can embark on the next chapter of her already prolific career.”

Crowley, 65, joined CNN in 1987, and has been chief political correspondent and host of State of the Union, its Sunday morning public-affairs show. She has covered several presidential campaigns and moderated a town-hall debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney during the 2012 campaign. The move comes amid buyouts and layoffs at Time Warner that have affected about 300 CNN employees.
