CNN+ host and former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace has reportedly been upset over the launch of the new CNN+ streaming platform.
“Fewer than 10,000 people are using CNN+ on a daily basis two weeks into its existence, according to people familiar with the matter,” CNBC reported.

One source noted, “Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of @CNNplus. Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on. ‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing,'”

Wallace announced his departure from Fox News to work at CNN+ in December.
“I am thrilled to join CNN+. After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming,” he said.
“I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape—and finding new ways to tell stories,” he added. “As I embark on this adventure, I am honored and delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team. I can’t wait to get started.”
Now he has apparently changed his view, revealing the streaming platform’s struggles in the process.
