Top CBS News Digital Executive Christy Tanner To Depart
Christy Tanner, the executive vice president and general manager of CBS News Digital, is leaving the network, after playing a central role in the expansion of the division’s streaming service Cbsn.

“It’s been eight years since I joined CBS Interactive, five years since I joined CBS News Digital, and … never years since I took some solid time off,” Tanner wrote in a memo to staffers on Thursday.

“The fact is I haven’t wanted to miss a minute of the incredible opportunity it has been to work with you – building Cbsn into the leading streaming news service, transforming CBS News Digital into a powerhouse and establishing news as a pillar of CBS All Access, Paramount+ and Pluto.”

No successor has been named, but her exit comes on the heels of the combination of the news and stations divisions, led by Neeraj Khemlani and Wendy McMahon.
