CNN+ anchor Chris Wallace stated he had been a victim of this situation, and he isn’t sure what the future may hold, whether it’s at CNN or somewhere else.
He is one of the speakers of a live-streamed event hosted by the Common Ground Committee this Sunday with CBS News correspondent and author Jacqueline Adams.

“CNN+ is shutting down at the end of this week. How should news consumers react? Are there already enough choices for new sources out there? And are the days of streaming already over?” asked Adams.
“I’ve been a victim of all of this,” Wallace responded. “I have absolutely no idea which is right and which is wrong. But the Discovery people are in charge, and so they made the decision… It’s so easy; two weeks ago, streaming was King. Now we’ve had the decision on CNN+.”
Wallace stated he didn’t know what was going to happen to him. “No, I can’t make news, and no, I don’t know,” Wallace said.
“I am going to be fine. I mean, I’m in good shape whether it’s at CNN or someplace else. Frankly, what I’m mostly concerned about right now and very is my team and hundreds of other people because there were 300 people I think that had jobs at CNN+ some of them had left CNN to go to streaming, some of them had left other places, moved across the country,” he added.
CNN+ will close at the end of April.
CNN+, the streaming service that was hyped as one of the most signifiant developments in the history of CNN, will shut down on April 30, just one month after it launched. https://t.co/Y1XHnFaK3P
