CNN Chief Executive Chris Licht Leaving Network

From a Washington Post story by Elahe Izadi, Jeremy Barr, and Will Sommer headlined “CNN chief executive Chris Licht leaving network after weeks of criticism”:

Embattled CNN chief executive Chris Licht is out at the cable network, capping weeks of tumult within the company following a highly criticized town hall with Donald Trump and a scathing article that portrayed Licht as all but failing at his job of barely a year.

Staffers were notified on Wednesday by David Zaslav, chief executive of parent company Warner Bros. Discovery, shortly before CNN anchor Kate Bolduan announced the news on air.
