Chris Licht, CNN CEO, to step down.


Chris Licht, the CNN CEO, announced on Wednesday that he would be resigning. Licht has been working for the company for 13 months as the CEO promising to turn around the networks popularity and win the minds of people “who follow Fox”.

Last week The Atlantic’s published a not-so-great feature of Licht saying that his leadership has become ineffective while internal employees at CNN aren’t fond of him.

The day before The Atlantic’s article was published last week, CNN selected David Leavy, a longtime associate of CEO David Zaslav, as its new COO.

What comes next: According to Puck, CNN senior vice president for talent and programming development Amy Entelis will likely take over as acting CEO.

This is developing and waiting on more information from CNN and officials.
