Meet Margot Griffin, CNN Drew Griffin Wife
CNN’s award-winning journalist Drew Griffin who was serving the network as a Senior Investigative Correspondent has died at the age of 60. He was survived by his wife Margot Griffin. Almost nothing about their marriage is public yet. By the look at their respective social media, one thing that we could tell was they loved traveling.
A pic that Margot shared on her Facebook in September 2017 suggests that it was a photo from the day of their wedding.
Coming back to Drew, he reportedly died after a long battle with cancer that he had kept secret from his co-workers. “Drew’s death is a devastating loss to CNN and our entire profession,” CNN CEO Chris Licht said in a note to staff. “A highly acclaimed investigative journalist, Drew’s work had an incredible impact and embodied the mission of this organization in every way.”
During his two-decades-long investigative journalism career, he had done hundreds of stories. His reporting had been honored with some of journalism’s most prestigious awards – Emmys, Peabodys, and Murrows among them. More recently, Griffin’s body of work in the aftermath of the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol exposed the dangers of election deniers and was cited in court filings by the Department of Justice and House select committee investigating the insurrection.
While investigative journalism was at the heart of Drew’s work, he often jumped into breaking news coverage – from mass shootings to devastating hurricanes. Among his more memorable on-air moments was during Hurricane Harvey in 2017, when he rescued a man by pulling him from a sinking pickup truck.
Colleagues remembered the veteran journalist as a kind, consummate professional who took the time to mentor younger reporters, cared deeply about his team – and was always ready to lend a hand. DiCarlo compared her time working with Griffin to “winning the career lottery.”
Other hobbies of the reporter included golf with friends and playing the trumpet. CNN’s Lisa Mirando also paid tribute to the grieving family and said that Drew’s loss is “immense for his wife, his family, his friends and for truth-tellers everywhere” as she shared her condolences to his loved ones. Likewise, This Morning co-anchor Poppy Harlow wrote that they had lost a “tenacious, curious, honest, dedicated and kind” colleague and sent her prayers to Margot and their children.
