CNN executive Mark Whitaker quitting

Email

NEW YORK (AP) — With Jeff Zucker taking over at CNN, the network's managing editor says he is quitting.

Mark Whitaker is a former Newsweek editor who also worked at NBC. He said in a memo to the staff Tuesday that with a new leader who has his own "forceful ideas," he thought it best to step aside.

CNN says Zucker will take over Whitaker's role overseeing the editorial content of CNN. There will not be a new managing editor.
