If you were looking for answers on Carl Azuz’s real age, then you’ve come to the right place. We explore how old the CNN journalist is in 2021.

Carl Azuz: Age explored

It has been reported that Carl Azuz is 31 years old as of June 2021. This is as the report states Carl Azuz was born on 14 August 1989. However, this can’t be correct.

Carl Azuz studied at the University of Georgia. He received a Bachelor’s degree in telecommunications and graduated top of his class.

Azuz was at the University of Georgia from 1980 to 1985. This means the aforementioned reports on Carl Azuz’s age must be wrong.

The average age of a college graduate (of a four-year course) in the US is 22 years old. Carl Azuz took five years to complete his undergraduate degree so it could be he was about 23 years old on graduating from the University of Georgia.

With that in mind, Carl Azuz could have been born between 1962 and 1963. This would make Carl Azuz’s real age somewhere in the mid to late 50s.


Carl is currently the anchor of CNN10, an on-demand show viewed by many students across the US. He has been with CNN for the past five years.

Carl Azuz’s birthday causes online confusion

Carl Azuz’s birthday is reported and widely believed by fans to fall on either 14 or 15 August. However, last summer Azuz took to Twitter to state he has never confirmed either of those as his birth date.

Azuz tweeted: “Y’all know I’ve never confirmed nor denied birthday-related content on the internet. But the fact that I’ve gotten so many unsolicited well wishes today is a testament to how AWESOME our audience is.”

He followed this tweet with a response to a fan about his current age. When asked on 15 August 2020 whether Carl was turning 30 years old, Carl Azuz responded: “Of course I won’t officially confirm or deny whether I was born on this date – that’s a question for the ages – but I do appreciate all of the kind tweets you guys have sent me…”
