NEW YORK (AP) — CNN is shutting down its CNN+ streaming service less than a month after its launch.
It’s a spectacular flameout for a venture that had attracted stars like Chris Wallace and Alison Roman and was seen as a way to attract a new generation of news consumers.
CNN+ launched when its parent was still part of AT&T. Its new corporate parent, Warner Bros. Discovery, is scrapping the service.
Some CNN+ programming and employees will be absorbed into the television network and website but there will be layoffs.
The head of CNN+, Andrew Morse, is leaving the company.
