CNN announced in an email to employees on Tuesday that the network’s airport monopoly would end on March 31.
According to the email, a “steep decline” in airport traffic due to COVID-19 combined with new ways travelers are receiving their news forced the change.
Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN, said there is less of a need for CNN’s Airport Network.
Two years ago Tucker Carlson pointed out CNN’s monopoly and noted that he hoped it would change.
Well, it has.
The network aired in 54 airports in the United States and Bermuda.
Zucker said that the network “has kept millions of domestic travelers informed.”
“It also became an iconic part of the traveling experience in the country,” he wrote.
