Will Anyone Want to Be the Leader of CNN?

From a Washington Post story by Jeremy Barr headlined “Will anyone want to be the leader of CNN?”:

For the second time in just over 15 months, David Zaslav is on the hunt for someone to take on one of the biggest jobs in media: the head of CNN. This search might be harder than the first.

The first time around, the Warner Bros. Discovery chief executive gravitated quickly to a veteran TV programmer with a varied and intriguing résumé. Chris Licht had resuscitated CBS’s lagging morning show, caught lightning in a bottle with MSNBC’s political chat show “Morning Joe” and even excelled at producing Stephen Colbert’s late-night comedy show. Zaslav hired him in April 2022 without interviewing anyone else.
