ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross and investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz are leaving ABC after more than two decades at the network, reports CNN's Oliver Darcy, who obtained an internal memo announcing their departures.

The backdrop: Ross was suspended from ABC for four weeks without pay in December for an incorrect report about Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. The report made no mention linking this incident to Ross and Schwartz's departures. The two said in a statement that, despite their exit from ABC, they plan to continue working in investigative journalism.
