CNN’s Sunday media affairs show Reliable Sources is being canceled, and anchor Brian Stelter is leaving the network, according to Stelter.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter expressed gratitude for the broadcast and his team’s exploration of “the media, truth, and the stories that define our world.”

He said;

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,”

Why Is Brian Stelter Leaving CNN?

CNN’s top media reporter, Brian Stelter, is leaving the network after executives chose to terminate his Sunday show.

Stelter began blogging about cable news as a student before becoming a media reporter for The New York Times. Reliable Sources is CNN’s longest-running show; Stelter has hosted it for the past nine years, and the show celebrated its 30th anniversary in March.

Yesterday, CNN President Chris Licht notified Stelter of the decision. Since taking over as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s buyout of the old Time Warner corporation, Licht has been making changes across the board.

CNN+, the network’s separate digital channel for which it had engaged former NPR host Audie Cornish and former Fox News personality Chris Wallace before it started, was canceled. (Both stars have remained with CNN.)

Stelter, who frequently boasted about the show’s ratings on Twitter, was one of the CNN hosts who faced regular criticism from conservatives for his portrayal of the media throughout the Trump administration.

Among those publicly criticizing CNN for being politicized was investor John Malone, a major financial stakeholder in the new WarnerDiscovery company.
