CNN host Brian Stelter is out of a job after months of speculation that he could be on the chopping block.
His last “Reliable Sources” show will air this Sunday, the network said, Fox News reported.
“CNN will end its ‘Reliable Sources’ program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors,” a CNN spokesperson said to Fox News.
The host spoke to NPR about his departure from the network and said that he is grateful for the show and the way his team examined “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”
“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” he said.
The host said he would have more to say on his show this Sunday.
“Stelter came to CNN from the New York Times as the nation’s top media reporter. He departs CNN an impeccable broadcaster,” CNN’s executive vice president for talent and content development, Amy Entelis, said. “We are proud of what Brian and his team accomplished over the years, and we’re confident their impact and influence will long outlive the show.”
