TVNewser has obtained an internal memo from CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton to the staff this morning.
“The numbers are still arriving, but it’s clear this morning that CNN’s multi-platform coverage of the Presidential Inauguration on Tuesday is another milestone in what has been a game-changing political season for our organization,” writes Walton. “We don’t have final television data yet, but CNN’s coverage handily beat the cable competition in the metered markets.”
He also notes Jane Maxwell, SVP CNN Special Events, is leaving the network. “She’s leaving us exactly where she has always wanted us, and where her professionalism, leadership, generosity and hard work ensured we’d be: at the top,” he writes.
