It is being widely reported that Jim Acosta will be exiting CNN, but there has been conflicting reports.
A Discovery Executive at CNN told John Nicosia, the “big name” about to exit CNN “does not have a place in the new CNN. He reminds us of the Zucker period we are looking to move far from. The only reason he is still on air was not to look like we were ‘cleaning house’ for political reasons right after the closing”
It is unclear if this Rumor is 100% going to happen, there has been conflicting reporting.
