There were rumblings when CNN got new leadership that Brian Stelter could wind up on the chopping block. It looks like those rumors have finally come to fruition:

More from David Folkenflik at NPR:

In a statement to NPR, Stelter says he’s grateful for the show and his team’s examination of “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” Stelter said, promising to say more on Sunday’s show — its final episode.

CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday. Licht has been making cuts throughout the network since taking the helm as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s takeover of the old Time Warner company. Stelter, who often touted the show’s ratings on Twitter, was among those CNN hosts targeted for frequent criticism from conservatives for his coverage of the media in the Trump years.


Hope he gets to keep the mug, at least.

Well, if nothing else, this means Brian will probably have more time for sightseeing.

And more time for watching Fox News, of course.



Brian Stelter says it’s still too early to tell if CNN+ was a success or a failure
