Christiane Amanpour leaving '60 Minutes'

May 13, 2005 at 7:32 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, May 13 (UPI) -- Christiane Amanpour, CNN's high-profile foreign correspondent, is giving up her part-time gig with CBS's "60 Minutes."

Daily Variety cites sources who said that Amanpour wanted to work full-time for "60 Minutes," but there are no open slots. Even Dan Rather has had trouble getting on the Sunday version of the show.

Amanpour contributed five or six stories a year to "60 Minutes" while working as CNN's chief international correspondent.

"I have concluded that this unique arrangement has now run its course and therefore I have decided not to seek a renewal of my contract with '60 Minutes,'" Amanpour said in a prepared statement.
