This is absolutely hilarious.
After being launched for just one single month, CNN+ has just announced that they will be terminating their streaming service because it appears to have “failed to resonate” with viewers.
According to Fox, CNN+ will officially be shut down on April 30th.
CNN Worldwide CEO Chris Licht said, “As we become Warner Bros. Discovery, CNN will be strongest as part of WBD’s streaming strategy which envisions news as an important part of a compelling broader offering along with sports, entertainment, and nonfiction content.”
Licht further explained, “We have therefore made the decision to cease operations of CNN+ and focus our investment on CNN’s core news-gathering operations and in further building CNN Digital. This is not a decision about quality; we appreciate all of the work, ambition and creativity that went into building CNN+, an organization with terrific talent and compelling programming. But our customers and CNN will be best served with a simpler streaming choice.”
Sorry Chris Wallace! Looks like he’s going to be needing a new job now.
Trump chimed in and released a message for Chris Wallace following the news:
