NewsAlert: Amanda Lang leaving CBC for another TV job

TORONTO — Amanda Lang has left CBC to pursue another opportunity in television, says a memo to staff.

CBC Editor-in-Chief Jennifer McGuire says Lang also plans to “devote more time to her writing” and notes she’ll publish a book next fall.

Lang joined CBC in 2009 as one half of “The Lang & O’Leary Exchange,” and as part of the team bringing business news to “The National.”

More to come.
