I'm CNN News Anchor Don Lemon AMA
Hi Redditors. You asked and you got it. Today is your day to AMA. It's a busy day with the debt ceiling and all. But, in between meetings and tapings for tonights 8pm EST show on CNN I'll be checking in and answering your questions. To confirm, IAMDONLEMON on Reddit, @donlemoncnn on Twitter, and just Don Lemon the CNN Anchor in real life. I've been in the news biz since 1991 when I moved from Louisiana to NYC. I've worked for Fox, NBC, and since 2006 I've been an Anchor for CNN. Awesome job!! I've covered everything from Hurricane Katrina to the death of Micheal Jackson, to the inauguration of President Obama, to how much it costs to send your kid to Hogwarts. Yep that last one is a joke, reference to a recent 'The Daily Show'. Recently Colbert interrupted my broadcast to chastise me for not asking a guest if he was a vampire. Was a great time, check it out, and AMA!
Really sleepy. iPhone auto corrects reddit to reedit, darn. Fixed: (http://twitter.com/#!/donlemoncnn/status/98387395841495040)
Answered as many as I could at the moment, stepping away to meet with the Joy Behar producers because I'm filling in for her later this month when she goes on vacation. I'll be back.
Got to a few more between meetings, will be back!
Hey everyone I'm going to have to run for the night and prepare for the show. I'm hosting 'In the Arena' tonight at 8p EST on CNN. Hope you watch. I'll know if you did. This has truly been a blast. I wish I had more time. But I wanted to take you up on your offer before too much time had passed. I hope you enjoyed it too. As I said before, I'll be back on Reddit as a regular user and look forward to being a part of the community.
Walk in truth!!! Don
