CNN Chairman and CEO Chris Licht is stepping down from his position, according to an announcement by the news organization’s parent company.
Licht, who took over in February 2022 after Jeff Zucker’s resignation, faced challenges during his tenure, including a push to move the network towards the political center.
In a statement, Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav praised Licht’s work and expressed confidence in CNN’s team. An interim leadership team, including executives Amy Entelis and Virginia Moseley, will guide CNN for the time being.
