Riz Khan quits CNN

Well known news presenter and anchor Riz Khan is quitting CNN after a seven-year stint. He will end his tenure in May. He will be pursuing his own interests in writing and news-based documentaries. CNN may use an Indian face to replace Mr. Khan as anchor for the popular show ‘Q&A with Riz Khan.

CNN has a few Indians serving on the channel, who operate from the US. The live half-hour show at 10 pm. was hosted three times a week and had recently won sponsorship from Virgin Atlantic.

Mr Khan was also anchoring the international Q&A show, meant for global markets. The show was available for Indian audiences at 1.30 pm. As part of its localisation strategy, CNN had introduced a specific regional version of the show in June, when it announced a separate South Asia launch.

Mr Khan will be based in the US and will do programming for various news channels. He could even be doing work for CNN. Mr. Khan was particularly popular with audiences in India. He recently covered the Gujarat earthquake from Bhuj. Before joining CNN, he worked at BBC.
