It never gets any easier to report the news of a public figure passing. However, since many people are obsessed with being the first to report news, sometimes they can miss the mark. For example, in November 2020, Twitter users spread the hashtag #RIPDrake, but the hitmaker has been alive and kicking. Not to mention, Hollywood Unlocked reported that Queen Elizabeth passed away in late February 2022. However, the Queen didn’t pass until Sept. 8, 2022. Now, many people are having a hard time believing that CNN10 anchor Carl Azuz died.

Is Carl Azuz dead? All signs point to Carl Azuz still being alive and well.

Truth be told, some people have a little bit too much time on their hands. For some odd reason, rumors about the CNN10 anchor passing away have surfaced online. However, that doesn’t seem to be accurate information.

For starters, being that Carl is employed by CNN, the company would have already made a statement about his death. After all, CNN is notorious for paying its respects to its employees and their loved ones with public statements. And as of writing, CNN has paid the rumors dust.
