Time Warner is reportedly putting together a list of potential executives to take over CNN Worldwide with the goal of ending the network’s ratings plunge, according to the New York Post.
Because of the ratings slide, Time Warner executives are considering replacing Jim Walton, who now runs CNN Worldwide, the piece adds.
One of the names floated internally is that of Jeff Zucker, the former NBCUniversal executive. Zucker didn’t return a call for comment, the story says.
The network has seen some of its lowest ratings in 20 years, putting it lower than Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and the Bio Channel, the story notes.
Still, no changes are imminent, the story points out.
