CNN Shock: Don Lemon Goes Rogue, Blasts Co-Host Kaitlan Collins Live
Clear and professional communication is essential for achieving goals, maintaining positive relationships, and resolving conflicts
Whether it is between coworkers, managers, or with clients and customers. A company's ability to communicate effectively is crucial to its success
The significance of formal communication in the workplace is highlighted by a recent incident involving CNN anchor Don Lemon and co-host Kaitlan Collins
The two journalists got into a heated argument in the heat of the moment, with Collins interrupting Lemon during a live broadcast
Even though these kinds of incidents are probably common in high-stress situations, it's important to keep in mind that they can harm both the company's and its employees' reputations
On several occasions while Lemon was speaking on Dec. 8 during CNN's breaking news coverage of Brittney Griner's release from Russia, Collins attempted to interject
Lemon once gestured with his finger above the desk, telling her to "standby one second."
However, off-air, 56-year-old Lemon became "nasty" with 30-year-old Collins and reprimanded her for "interrupting" him, which caused the female co-host to become "visibly upset,"
Chris Licht, the head of CNN, understood of the incident and reportedly told Lemon to "take a beat." On the Dec. 9 broadcast, co-host Poppy Harlow informed viewers that Lemon was absent because "Don has the day off."
