(Newser) – Anchor Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN, he announced during tonight’s show—his last after 27 years at the channel. Dobbs, whose contract wasn’t up until 2011, has made waves with his anti-immigration views and his questioning of President Obama’s citizenship; he didn’t shed much light on his next move, saying he was “considering a number of options and directions.”

“Some leaders in the media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond my role here at CNN and engage in constructive problem-solving,” Dobbs, 64, added. He met with Fox News’ Roger Ailes last month, the New York Times reports, though it’s not clear that he might jump to the rival network.
