Two more CNN media team employees announced their departure from the network Wednesday amid President Chris Licht’s staffing changes.

Senior editor An Phung and managing editor Alex Koppelman, both previous colleagues of former anchor Brian Stelter, suddenly announced their departures shortly after several major anchors and reporters had stepped down. Their announcements came amid Licht’s attempt to reform the network in order to produce more bipartisan coverage.

“I am sad to announce that I will be leaving CNN,” Phung said. “There isn’t enough room here to praise all the people who made it a great place to work. And there are so many people to thank for helping me tell good and important stories about the threats against journalism and democracy. I will be spending my remaining time at CNN expressing my gratitude to them.”


In additional tweets, Phung wrote:

My five and a half years on the media desk with @AlexKoppelman, @oliverdarcy and @brianstelter are ones that I will never forget. They made me a stronger editor, a more engaged journalist and a more astute observer of the rhythms of our ever-changing and troubled industry. 3/4

For a kid born on a refugee boat, a prestigious job at CNN was never a given. Then to be able to work with some of the most brilliant journalists in the industry—this job has just exceeded my biggest and boldest childhood dreams. I am living proof of what is possible. 4/4

Koppelman also announced his departure from CNN on Wednesday. He wrote:

Some news: I’m leaving CNN after six years there. It’s been an incredible place to work, and a privilege to manage an amazing group of editors and reporters, and get to work with even more—so many I can’t possibly name or thank them individually.

I’m so proud of the work we were able to do together—revealing allegations against Mark Halperin, the series of stories that led to the deplatforming of Alex Jones, reporting on sexual assault and Uber, ferreting out misinfo, breaking the Twitter whistleblower news and much more.
