CNN mainstay Jim Sciutto has been off air after network bosses ordered him to address a 'personal situation' stemming from a 'serious fall' he suffered while in Amsterdam earlier this year.

The Daily Beast's Confider reported earlier this week that Sciutto underwent an internal investigation at CNN earlier in 2022. The website says that the investigation was prompted when Sciutto suffered a 'serious fall' while in Amsterdam. 

A media source has told DailyMail.com that Sciutto is now on 'personal leave'. CNN has not responded to requests for comment.

Sciutto typically anchors CNN Newsroom Monday through Friday alongside Harlow. He regularly writes articles for the network's website and weighs in on other show's with regard to national security issues.  

On October 3, Sciutto published an article on CNN.com titled: 'US considering responses to possible Russian escalation in Ukraine, including its potential use of tactical
