Former CNN anchor Don Lemon has announced his next career move.

On Tuesday (January 9), Lemon said he was returning with a new media company and a podcast called "The Don Lemon Show." The podcast will air three times a week on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter and owned by Elon Musk, per the Los Angeles Times.

Lemon tweeted Tuesday that he was "back bigger, bolder, freer!"

"It will be available to everyone, easily, whenever and wherever you want it, streaming on the platforms where the conversations are happening. And you'll find it first on X, the biggest space for free speech in the world," Lemon said announcing the new project.

The ex-CNN anchor said he wanted to create an outlet for debate and discussion without "hall monitors."

News of the podcast comes after Lemon exited CNN in April after 17 years with the network. Lemon previously claimed he was unexpectedly fired.

“I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN, I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network,” Lemon tweeted at the time.

CNN confirmed that it had "parted ways" with Lemon, but the network called his version of events "inaccurate."

"Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter," CNN previously said in a statement.

Lemon's podcast is set to launch in February.
