CNN has ended its daily newscast designed for Snapchat users just four months after launching it. CNN and Los Angeles-based Snap Inc. said the program, called The Update, failed to generate enough advertising revenue to sustain itself.
CNN debuted a daily program Monday on Snapchat Shows, a growing roster of short-form video series on the social-media platform. Airing every weekday at 6 p.m. ET, The Update will feature breaking news from the cable network’s reporters exclusive to Snapchat in its signature Shows format. CNN will also offer rolling updates on developing news as part of the program.
