CNN shutting down Hong Kong program

After announcing plans to cut 90 minutes of programming from its London facility, CNN is now cancelling “News Stream” — a daily show produced from its Hong Kong newsroom.

  • The moves mean that no regularly scheduled programming will be produced from Hong Kong once the show stops airing.
  • “News Stream” and the London based programming aired on CNN International.
  • After becoming part of AT&T, execs have embarked on a series of cost cutting moves.
  • Select staffers at the flagship U.S. channel were offered buyouts earlier this year.
  • WarnerMedia, meanwhile, moved into a new headquarters in Hudson Yards earlier this year.
  • Plans for the move were put into place before AT&T bought Time Warner and renamed it WarnerMedia.
