Report: Chris Wallace Already Furious With CNN, Threatening to Leave Little-Watched Streaming Service

Former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace is reportedly not happy where he landed — at the newly launched, yet already struggling CNN streaming network CNN+

On Tuesday, Jon Nicosia, former managing editor of Mediaite, broke the story of Wallace being disgruntled with his new network and already threatening to leave after “having daily breakdowns.”

“SOURCE: Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of @CNNplus. Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on. ‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing,’” he said.

“@CNNplus struggles to lure viewers in its early days, drawing fewer than 10,000 daily users,” the reporter said.

“SOURCE CONT’D: ‘He’s telling anyone that will listen he wants Cuomo’s old time slot,’” he said.

Reports Tuesday indicated that major staff cuts are coming after the service attracted only about 10,000 daily paying users.

“Fewer than 10,000 people are using CNN+ on a daily basis two weeks into its existence,” CNBC reported.

“To put that daily user number in perspective, CNN’s cable network suffered a sharp decline in viewership last year but still rang up an average of 773,000 total viewers a day,” the financial news outlet continued.

The Daily Wire adds:

The report noted that there is widespread skepticism over whether there is enough demand to even sustain the service moving forward.

Axios reported that CNN’s investment in CNN+ is expected to be dramatically cut and that projections for how many subscribers that service was expected to get will also be significantly reduced.
