According to a new report from Puck News, CNN has picked Chris Licht as the new President.
Licht is the executive vice president of special programming for CBS as well as executive producer of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
CNN has reportedly zeroed in on the replacement for former President Jeff Zucker, and it will be Chris Licht, sources told Puck News’ Dylan Byers.
Byers’ sources have close ties to Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav, according to his report.
“I can now report, based on conversations with sources who have spoken directly with Zaslav, that Licht is indeed the person who Zaslav has selected to run CNN,” Byers wrote.
“Licht will run CNN as head of news for Warner Bros. Discovery, a source familiar with the matter said. Unlike Zucker, his purview will not extend to sports. Licht has a deal with CBS that expires in April, according to people familiar with the matter, but his hiring is likely to be announced at, or ahead of, a special Discovery shareholders meeting on March 11.”
