"Anna Coren, Hong Kong."

Could Anna Coren be looking to leave Today Tonight?

The Daily Telegraph reports she is screen-testing for roles at the Atlanta headquarters of US news network CNN.

It is understood the Today Tonight host is seeking a position in Asia, and has been seen in the CNN studios signing off her news reports with the phrase “Anna Coren, Hong Kong”, says the article.

Channel 7 refused to comment on Coren’s international research project yesterday, but the network is aware of her desire to broaden her horizons.

Coren is said to be disappointed by a series of events that have made her the headline – most notably the Mercedes Corby defamation case and her producer boyfriend Andrew Bourke’s departure from TT. Bourke’s exit from TT following the recent ill-fated Corby case – rumoured to have cost Seven $5 million – is believed to have stretched Coren’s relationship with network heads.

“She’s had enough – and you get the impression that the feeling is mutual,” one industry source said.

Coren, who will be back on air on Monday, has just over six months left in her contract with Seven, including a week of presenting from Beijing.
