Warner Media confirmed the launch of the new direct-to-consumer news service CNN+ will take place March 24 2022. The news was released ahead of a major agreement within Discovery ahead of the merger between Warner and Discovery.
“March 29 will be an important day in the history of CNN and CNN+ will be a critical part of our future,” said CNN Executive Vice President, Chief Digital Officer, and head of CNN+ Andrew Morse. “I am so proud of the work our teams have done to ensure our world-class journalism and storytelling comes to life on this new platform. We can’t wait for our subscribers to experience it.”
