CNN has cancelled daily Snapchat news show The Update after just four months, the companies have revealed:
“Snap and CNN have built a great partnership over the years and our teams have enormous admiration for each other. We plan to keep working together and mutually decided to hit pause as we explore the best opportunities for doing that.”
First announced on Aug. 21, The Update was billed as a “brand new daily Snapchat Show that provides a rundown of the biggest news from CNN reporters and bureaus around the world.”
The series aimed to “tap into the largest global newsgathering operation, with CNN’s own anchors, correspondents and reporters publishing on Snapchat throughout each day and time zone, with rolling updates as news breaks. Each Show features five or more stories from CNN’s team around the world, further cementing CNN as a key source of breaking news for Snapchatters.”
The Update‘s final episode slated to air at the end of December.
