Cheatwood: “Immense Loss” For CNN?

By Brian 

Michele Greppi reports: “CNN sources said Mr. Cheatwood’s exit will be sensitive because he is aware of CNN’s plans for covering the 2008 election campaigns, as well as the results of recent programming reviews and strategy.

‘He knows everything. It’s an immense loss,’ said an industry source familiar with Mr. Cheatwood’s role at CNN.”

Is that what Roger Ailes meant when he said Cheatwood “possesses a wealth of experience he can share with us?”
