KC Estenson, SVP and GM of CNN Digital, is leaving the company as the network finalizes a workforce reduction of 300 employees.
Atlanta-based Estenson joined CNN in 2008 overseeing all aspects of CNN Digital’s business. More recently he was running the business side as CNN.com editorial was re-assigned to New York-based CNN SVP Andrew Morse.
Estenson joined CNN from the Walt Disney Company where he oversaw the digital media businesses across the portfolio. Estenson, insiders tell TVNewser, is on vacation this week and was planning to announce his departure when he returned.
