CNN’s CEO Chris Licht is resigning after a year of working at the network, following a staff revolt and a slump in ratings.

It is reported that some prominent figures in the network wanted him to step down after a scathing magazine profile alienated staffers. Warner Bros. Discovery, which is CNN’s parent company announced that Licht’s resignation will go into effect immediately.

It is also being rumored that Amy Entelis, a veteran executive at the network, will be his replacement.

His departure comes a little more than a year after he took over for Jeff Zucker, who was forced to quit after revelations of an affair with a subordinate. Licht has accused his predecessor of planting negative stories about the news operation to undermine his leadership.

“I have great respect for Chris, personally and professionally,” Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said in a statement. “The job of leading CNN was never going to be easy, especially at a time of huge disruption and transformation, and he has poured his heart and soul into it.”

The sudden ouster has people wondering whether Licht was fired from CNN. Here are some of the reactions:
