CNN has just officially canceled CNN host Brian Stelter’s show Reliable Sources.
Shortly after CNN decided to pull the plug on Stelter’s show, Stelter resigned from the far-left netowrk.
Stelter was the host of Reliable Sources since 2013 and is just one of the many CNN hosts in recent months who has been shown the door due to low ratings or scandals.
After President Jeff Zucker resigned due to a personal scandal, the new boss of CNN Chris Licht claims he wants to change CNN into a more bipartisan network.

The New York Post dropped these details:
CNN personality Brian Stelter is leaving the network during an ongoing shakeup at the left-leaning cable news outlet.
“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “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.”
Reliable Sources was the longest-running show on CNN prior to Thursday’s announcement. Stelter has anchored the program since 2013.
Stelter, 36, confirmed his exit in a statement and said he would provide more details when the final episode of his show airs on Sunday.
“I’m grateful for my nine years with CNN, proud of what we accomplished on Reliable Sources and so thankful for the viewers who tuned in every week for our examination of the media, truth and the stories that shape our world,” Stelter said.

The Daily Mail had more details to add to the story:
CNN has cancelled Brian Stelter’s Sunday media show after new boss Chris Licht vowed to clean up the network and move away from opinion broadcasting.
Stelter, the chief media correspondent and host of Reliable Sources for the last nine years, is the second casualty of the network after Licht took over earlier this year.
Jeffrey Toobin, CNN’s legal analyst, announced last week that he would not be returning to the network after his vacation.
Stelter confirmed in a statement to NPR that he would be stepping down from the show, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in March
He said he was grateful for the show and for his team’s examination of ‘the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.’
Stelter added: ‘It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential.’
