Every time a network gets a new boss, you know there will be changes coming and big ones. That is especially true at CNN which has struggled in recent years. CNN needs to do something to ‘get back up on the horse.’
If you work at CNN right now, you are on edge wondering what is coming or not coming for you. Does loyalty matter? or is this business?
If you work at other networks, you wonder what is possible. Will there be talent raids from other networks/cables? Rumors are that CNN has lots of cash so expect talent raids.
