WASHINGTON – Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, has told network officials that he will not leave his television career to become the U.S. surgeon general, according to sources familiar with his decision. The decision means that the often low-profile job will not get the mass-media jolt from appointing the well-known television celebrity.

He also has been offered a top post in the new White House Office of Health Reform, twin duties that could make him the highest-profile surgeon general in history.
