Al Jazeera reports that following a year full of missteps and plummeting ratings, Chris Licht is stepping down as CNN's chief executive. The announcement was made by David Zaslav, the CEO of CNN's parent company, Warner Bros Discovery. CNN originally reported that Zaslav said that the leadership change is effective immediately. Until a permanent replacement is named, Zaslav has reportedly appointed a four-person
leadership team to helm the network. Four current CNN executives will make up the leadership team, including Amy Entelis, Virginia Moseley, Eric Sherling and David Leavy.
