Announcing the news on Twitter, Toobin — who is currently on vacation — announced that he wouldn't be returning to CNN's airwaves following his time off and, in classic style, used the news to hawk his forthcoming book on the Oklahoma City bombing:

Toobin had been with CNN since 2002, a network that — unlike The New Yorker — welcomed him back rather than firing him after he exposed himself on a Zoom call. 

CNN responded to the news saying the network is "grateful for Jeffrey’s contributions to the network over the years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors."
