CNN's Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chris Licht, has announced his departure from the prominent US broadcaster. After taking over from Jeff Zucker just a year ago, Licht's resignation comes as a surprise.

 

The move follows Zucker's resignation due to an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate. Effective immediately, Licht's departure has been confirmed by CNN's parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.

During Licht's absence, a capable team of seasoned programming leaders will take charge. This group includes Amy Entelis, responsible for talent and content development, Virginia Moseley, overseeing editorial matters, and Eric Sherling, in charge of US-based programming.

 

In addition, David Leavy, a trusted associate of Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, will oversee the commercial aspects of the company as the new chief operating officer (COO).
