With the news that CNN Hong Kong will only have one show soon (News Stream with Kristi Lu Stout), many prominent anchors and correspondents have begun to leave the network.
Earlier in June, Pauline Chiou was the first to leave the crumbling CNN Hong Kong.
There are a few others whose fate is unknown in the CNN Hong Kong bureau. Among them is Patricia Wu — what will become of her? She is currently the cohost of CNN Newsroom live from Hong Kong with Andrew Stevens, but that show will be canned soon. In the TVNewser article I linked to above, it states Andrew will remain in Hong Kong and provide his business expertise. No such role was outlined for Patricia. Could she be the next “fatality” on the sinking ship that is CNN Hong Kong? (I personally hope not — I like her!)
It’s also worth pointing out that the production side of HK will be moving to Atlanta, as outlined in the TVNewser article.
