The American news withdraws from the waiting halls and luggage conveyor belts. After 30 years, the CNN airport program will soon be discontinued.
CNN itself gives on the one hand the possibility of being able to stream the news channel on the move as the reason for the end. On the other hand, the number of passengers fell sharply in Corona times. The “LA Times“Suspects the airport program is simply not profitable. This can of course also be justified with the lack of air travel and the causally associated lack of public traffic at the airports. Why should advertising be placed on a program that hardly ever reaches viewers?
In spring, after 30 years, the CNN airport program will end
So it is not surprising that the plug will be pulled at the end of March, as the “Süddeutsche” first reported in this country. The airport program has been running at almost 60 US airports since 1991. The material sent is explicitly tailored to air travelers. For example, there are no pictures of air accidents to be seen there. The protection of children and young people was also very important on the channel specially designed for airports.
In the CNN headquarters, two dozen employees were affected by the station’s setting, the report said. Channel boss Jeff Zucker reportedly shared the information internally on Tuesday.
