The company announced Thursday that it is ending the media analysis show that has aired in various iterations for 30 years. His last episode will be this Sunday.
“As a result Brian Stelter will be leaving the company,” a CNN spokesperson told CNN Business. “We value his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors.”
Amy Entelis, CNN’s executive vice president of talent and content development, praised Stelter’s accomplishments.
“Stelter came to CNN from the New York Times as the country’s leading news reporter. He leaves CNN an impeccable broadcaster,” she said in a statement. “We are proud of what Brian and his team have achieved over the years and are confident that their impact and influence will live on through the show.”
Stelter added that he was grateful for his nine years at CNN and “proud of what we accomplished in trusted sources and so grateful for the viewers who tune in each week for our examination of media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”
“It was a rare privilege to host a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more important,” he said in a statement to CNN Business. “I’ll have more to say on Sunday.”
CNN’s media coverage won’t end with Stelter’s departure. CNN’s digital media team and the Trusted Sources newsletter will continue with Darcy running the newsletter.
