CNN Worldwide president isn’t going anywhere just yet. The network renewed his contract a few months ago, Vanity Fair reports today, extending his contract through the 2020 general election.
AT&T is poised to take over Time Warner, the parent of CNN, now that the federal judge has greenlit the merger.
Although the new contract signing occurred a few months ago, Vanity Fair reports that Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes and Turner Broadcasting CEO John Martin looped AT&T in on the extension and they had no objections.
CNN didn’t comment.
