While conservative news has been achieving record numbers in viewership, their liberal news counterparts have seen a drastic decrease in viewership, so bad that some networks are making huge changes in hopes of turning the tide and in all seriousness, staying afloat.
CNN is one of so called liberal news networks that is making big changes to their organizational structure and on-air talent as one of their most prominent hosts, Ana Cabrera, recently announced her departure from the network.
Cabrera issued a departing statement showing her appreciation for the opportunity at CNN and the support she received from viewers.
“My heart is full of gratitude for the incredible opportunities I’ve had at CNN to serve our viewers and to work alongside extraordinary journalists. CNN has been like a family. I love my colleagues and believe in the mission of the organization.”
“But after nearly a decade at CNN, I’m making the personal decision to explore a new professional chapter. Time to embrace new challenges and opportunities. I’m firmly committed to my work as a journalist in the next stage of my career. But for now, I look forward to hitting pause and spending some extra time with my family.”
Deadline reported that “Since news broke of her pending departure earlier this month, sources have said that she is eyeing a role at NBCUniversal. The network has declined to comment and Cabrera’s reps did not return requests for comment. Her exit is said to be unrelated to the recent layoffs at the network. Cabrera anchors CNN Newsroom weekdays at 1 PM ET. She wrote on Twitter that her final show will be on Dec. 22.”
New CEO of CNN, Chris Licht, is making big changes to the network and recent reports revealed that mass layoffs are in store in the coming weeks as the organization continues to struggle.
Licht sent an email to CNN employees about the expected layoffs saying, “Our people are the heart and soul of this organization. It is incredibly hard to say goodbye to any one member of the CNN team, much less many. I recently described this process as a gut punch, because I know that is how it feels for all of us.”
The struggles of “liberal media” networks have been consistent over the past year and while it is unfortunate to see people losing their jobs, the public is making their dissidence known towards the kind of reporting CNN and similar networks are conducting.
