Who Was Drew Griffin and What Was His Cause of Death?
Drew Griffin was a correspondent for CNN’s investigative unit in Atlanta, Georgia.
After joining the network in May 2004, he worked for CNN for almost two decades and has been honored with some of journalism’s most prestigious awards, including Emmys, Peabodys and Murrows.
Griffin earned his bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as an investigative reporter for CBS 2 News in Los Angeles for 10 years before joining CNN.
On Saturday, December 17, 2022, the 60-year-old passed away after a long battle with cancer, his family told the broadcaster.
Griffin is survived by his wife Margot, their three children, daughter Ele Gast and sons Louis and Miles Griffin, and two grandchildren.
“He was both fearless and artful, and he knew how to push a story to the limit while telling it in a way that everyone could understand,” Michael Bass, CNN’s executive vice president of programming, said in a statement to the investigative team CNN on Sunday.
“How many times has he stalked an involuntary interviewee? How many times has he told the truth to power? How many times has he made a difference in something important… It has been an honor to be his colleague and to witness his work and the way it has changed the world.”
