Fox News is reporting Tuesday night that as of March 31, the CNN Airport Network is closing up shop. Travelers will no longer need to try to tune out the omnipresent babble as it will be pulled from the terminals. As Fox News reports, there was much rejoicing.
Jeff Zucker has notified CNN staff that "the CNN Airport Network will end operations as of March 31."

I would love to know CNN's reasoning, but won't click on this article. I know it's not for financial reasons. It's always been a $ loser. People don't watch CNN in airports. You can't hear the sound, the whole thing is stupid.
I guess being a laughing stock was the reason.
