The hits just keep coming for CNN.
Their ratings are in the gutter, they’re cutting on air talent left and right, and now they’re closing down their center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The center has been there since the network began, years ago.

CNN Is Closing Its Iconic CNN Center in Atlanta
CNN has been a part of the fabric of Atlanta since local media magnate Ted Turner launched the network in 1980, and it’s literally been part of the city’s skyline and footprint since it moved to a prominent spot in downtown Atlanta in 1987.
Sadly, CNN has concentrated most of its operations in New York City and Washington, D.C., in recent years, and soon CNN’s downtown presence will only be a memory. The network is moving out of its downtown space in what we now know as the CNN Center.
“After more than 35 years, CNN is leaving its downtown mainstay in stages this year, with the entire operation moving back to renovated space at the 30-acre Turner Techwood campus in Midtown, according to a CNN spokeswoman,” reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Originally, the appeal of CNN locating itself in Atlanta was that it remained at a safe enough distance from the coastal elites to maintain an unbiased view of events, at least in theory. But the network gradually moved its operations to the places it initially sought to distance itself from. Only some of the behind-the-scenes operations remain in Atlanta.
It has been a bad year for CNN.
CNN is planning to be completely moved out of its downtown Atlanta offices by the end of the year.
