Bedingfield: “At Times, Jon & I Didn’t See Eye-To-Eye…But He’s The Boss”

By Brian 

Sid Bedingfield‘s decision to leave CNN after nearly 20 years was by mutual agreement with president Jon Klein, the departing senior vice president of CNN Productions tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“At times, Jon and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on ‘CNN Presents,'” he says. “But he’s the boss, and he has every right to decide what it should be.”

Bedingfield joined the network in 1986 as a writer. For a while, he oversaw operations for CNN/U.S. He also had a long stint at CNNI. He plans to take a couple months off “before pursuing new work, possibly in documentaries.”
