As CNN prepares to enter the Jeff Zucker era, several major names associated with “The Worldwide Leader in News” are parting ways with the network. Among those household names who will no longer be sharing their insights with CNN are political odd couple James Carville and Mary Matalin.
According to reports, Carville and Matalin are not renewing their contracts as CNN contributors. They join RedState co-founder Erick Erickson who will also not renew his contract and is reportedly heading to Fox News Channel.
On the other side of the cameras, Mark Whitaker, CNN’s executive vice president and managing editor for the last two years, announced his intention to leave the network as well. Whitaker famously oversaw the development of Soledad O’Brien’s Starting Point.
