CNN Hires New Network President To Replace Jeff Zucker

Veteran television producer Chris Licht has been selected as CNN‘s next network president, multiple sources with knowledge of the decision confirmed to CNN Business. Licht’s hiring is expected to officially be announced next week, a source confirmed, however, neither side has commented on the expected deal. The decision comes amid the upcoming merger between Discovery and WarnerMedia — which CNN is a subsidiary of — this spring.

The fact that Licht used to work for a scumbag like Stephen Colbert doesn’t bold well for CNN changing it’s anti-Trump leanings anytime soon.
