(FILES) Chris Licht, Chairman and CEO, CNN Worldwide, speaks onstage during the Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront 2023 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on May 17, 2023 in New York City. Licht, the embattled head of CNN, has stepped down from the news network "effective immediately," Warner Brothers Discovery announced on June 7, 2023, as it appointed an interim leadership team. After joining CNN last year, Licht came under fire for editorial decisions including a recent town hall meeting with former president Donald Trump that was dominated by cheering from supporters and jeering at CNN interviewer Kaitlan Collins.
