CNN is about to make a major change that involves this shocking firing

The upheaval at CNN is nowhere near over.

In fact, it’s about to get worse.

And that’s because CNN is about to make a major change that involves this shocking firing.

CNN recently launched its much-hyped streaming service CNN+.

Executives at networks and sports leagues believe streaming is the future of how the audience will consume their content.

But just like on TV, no one wants to watch CNN.

Two weeks after debuting CNN+, fewer than 10,000 users at any given time are using the platform, a far cry from the projected 2,000,000 in year one.

CNBC reports:

Fewer than 10,000 people are using CNN+ on a daily basis two weeks into its existence, according to people familiar with the matter.

The people spoke with CNBC on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss nonpublic data.

Disgraced former network president Jeff Zucker gambled huge on CNN+.

Jeff Zucker plowed $300 million into the platform and lured Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to serve as the centerpiece of the platform’s programming.

CNN planned to spend upwards of one billion dollars over the course of the next four years on CNN+.

That’s all out the window as Warner Media – CNN’s parent company – completes its merger with Discovery.

Now, employees at CNN+ are bracing for massive layoffs and cutbacks in the investment in programming.

Axios reports:

Investment and projections for CNN+ are expected to be cut dramatically in response to a low adoption rate, two sources tell Axios.

By the numbers: The news giant was initially planning to invest around $1 billion in the service over the next four years.

Hundreds of millions of dollars are expected to be cut from that original investment total.

To date, around $300 million has been spent on the subscription service, which includes a sizable marketing investment.

CNN+ was doomed from the start.

Just last week, CNN did not have one single show in primetime that drew more than 650,000 viewers.

After Donald Trump left office, CNN lost 90 percent of its primetime audience.

The business model for CNN+ never made a lick of sense.

Why would anyone pay to watch the same CNN hosts they did not watch on TV where it did not cost them anything?
