Stelter anchors the long-running series, which examines the media landscape, and serves as chief media correspondent for CNN Worldwide. The journalist first joined CNN in 2013.
“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result, Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors,” a spokesperson for CNN said in a statement.
The network did not give a reason for canceling the show, which has been on the schedule at CNN since 1993. Stelter also writes the popular Reliable Sources newsletter for the company. It is not yet clear what will happen to the publication.
“I’m grateful for my nine years with CNN, proud of what we accomplished on Reliable Sources and so thankful for the viewers who tuned in every week for our examination of the media, truth and the stories that shape our world. It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential. I’ll have more to say on Sunday,” Stelter said in a statement.
Before coming to CNN, Stelter worked at The New York Times as a reporter covering television and digital media. Stelter is also the author of several books, most recently 2020’s HOAX: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth.
“Stelter came to CNN from The New York Times as the nation’s top media reporter. He departs CNN an impeccable broadcaster. We are proud of what Brian and his team accomplished over the years, and we’re confident their impact and influence will long outlive the show,” said Amy Entelis, executive vp talent and content development at CNN Worldwide.
