CNN/US president Jon Klein had no idea he was about to canned when he went to a meeting with CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton to days ago.
But then – wham – he was out of a job.
“People get shot in our business. I got shot,” Klein said in an interview with New York Magazine.
Klein feels like he should have gotten a chance to prove that new shows hosted by Elliot Spitzer and Piers Morgan would turn CNN around.
“I expected a decision would be made after the show had been on for a while,” Klein said. “Others thought differently. I’m disappointed.”
