In this article, you will get all the information regarding Kaitlan Collins dumps Don Lemon’s agent amid ‘CNN This Morning’ upheaval
“CNN This Morning” host Kaitlan Collins left the agent he shared with his controversial co-host Don Lemon amid ongoing turmoil at the cable news network, the Post has learned.
Collins was represented by United Talent Agency SuperAgent Jay Sures, but their relationship soured in recent months as tensions rose between the 30-year-old anchor and 57-year-old Lemon, Sures’ star client.

A source with knowledge said, “Jay wasn’t effectively antagonizing her,” pointing to a critical period after Lemon yelled at Collins off-camera during the December 8 broadcast.
While it is unclear when Collins broke off her relationship with Suresh, sources said she recently jumped ship for Arie Emanuel’s agency, William Morris Endeavour.
Collins declined to comment.
On Wednesday, Suresh confirmed their separation.
“We wish him the best for his future endeavors,” Sures told the Post.
Lemon has come under the scanner of controversies one after the other. Most notably, he caused a national uproar — and angered his allies and onlookers — when he said last month that GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley was “not in his prime.”
He was made to apologize and undergo unspecified training, but the show continued in last place. “CNN This Morning” reached 360,000 average total viewers and 73,000 viewers in the all-important 25 to 54-year-old demographic in February.
By comparison, Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”SThere were an average of 1.2 million total viewers and 170,000 average demo viewers for the month.
MNSBC’s “Morning Joe” grabbed 895,000 total viewers and 107,000 demo viewers.
On Monday, there was a stir at the morning show, with executive producer Eric Hall being replaced by longtime CNN producers Lauren Mensch and Chris Russell, who was most recently executive producer of NewsNation’s “On Balance with Leland Witter.”
Hall was abruptly reassigned from his “CNN This Morning” gig in late January and moved into a new role in the 11 a.m. hour of “CNN Tonight” amid a Lemon-induced flare-up and low ratings.
