CNN cancels News Stream in a “pivot away from Asia”

CNN International isn’t done shaking up its schedule just yet. In addition to the news that the network is cutting at least 90 minutes from CNN London and temporarily replacing it with simulcasts from CNN/US, today it was reported that News Stream with Kristie Lu Stout, CNN’s only show anchored by from Hong Kong, was also being axed.

In what BuzzFeed reports insiders call a “pivot away from Asia,” the Hong Kong bureau will contribute no scheduled show to the network’s programming as of August.

“We’re refocusing our resources in Asia on our newsgathering, digital and feature programming operations, as we feel this is the best way to serve our audiences both in the region and around the world,” a CNN spokesperson told BuzzFeed about the show’s cancelation.

  1. I am surprised it has taken this long to remove this CNNi is just going to be a total US operation again soon and a big backward step for the channel.
