Josh Elliott is out at CBS News. Elliott announced on CBSN Friday that it was his last day in the streaming service’s anchor chair, but that he would be working on field assignments for CBS News. Not so, it turns out. “CBS News and Josh Elliott are parting ways,” said a net spokesperson on Monday. “Josh will no longer be reporting for CBS News. We are grateful for his contributions over the last year.” On Friday, the New York Post reported Elliott’s on-air farewell announcement came as a surprise to network brass. Elliott joined CBS in 2016 from NBC Sports; his contract runs until April 2018.

Nick Cannon announced via social media that he is quitting as host of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. “I have loved hosting America’s Got Talent for the last 8 seasons,” posted Cannon, “…but my soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices.” Cannon said he’d been told by his “team” that the network had considered firing him (though he was not let go) because of jokes he’d told in Showtime special, Stand Up, Don’t Shoot. “I wish AGT and NBC the best in the upcoming season,” said Cannon, “but I cannot see myself returning.”

It’s not just a White House war on the media – now the media is firing at each other. Fox NewsSean Hannity wasn’t happy with MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough’s criticism of Donald Trump advisor Stephen Miller (“horrendous,” “an embarrassment”), who drew negative reviews after making the rounds defending his boss on Sunday. In a flurry of tweets, Hannity called Morning Joe’s ratings “horrific,” and the host a “pompous arrogant jackass.” The White House director of social media, Dan Scavino, jumped into the fray, linking to Hannity’s ratings mock and tweeting, “Hannity owns Jealous Joe.” Responding to a tweet about the apparent Twitter war, Scarborough said, “A ‘war between’ suggests that I have found it worth my time to respond. I haven’t.”

In related Stephen Miller news, Zach Braff (Scrubs) tweeted to Saturday Night Live exec producer Lorne Michaels, “I will shave my head to play this guy.”

Dr. Richard Besser is leaving his post as ABC News’ Chief Health and Medical Editor to join the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as president and CEO. Besser, who joined ABC News in 2009, “has been there for everybody in this News Division at our most vulnerable moments, the painful and scary moments, and at those moments when we need a shoulder to cry on,” wrote ABC News president James Goldston in a memo to staff. “I, and I know all of you, will be forever grateful to him.” Besser’s last day is April 3.
