Javier Morgado, a longtime executive producer at CNN, will be leaving the network, amid a wave of company layoffs.
He’s expected to depart in early 2023.
Morgado has served as the executive producer of At This Hour with Kate Bolduan since April 2021. He previously spent six and a half years as the executive producer of New Day.
In a tweet, Morgado said, “Some personal news to share… I will be leaving @cnn after 11 years. It’s been an incredible honor to work with such a dedicated team of journalists around the world.”
Morgado first joined CNN in December 2011 as the senior broadcast producer for the network’s morning block, Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien, which was later rebranded as New Day. He was promoted to the role of executive producer for New Day in 2014 and held that position until last year.
Before joining CNN, Morgado served as the Vice President of Business Development & Communications for Latina magazine, where he was responsible for the strategic development of the magazine’s print and online properties.
He also spent more than a decade at NBC News, starting as an assignment manager at the network’s owned-and-operated station in Miami and eventually serving as the supervising broadcast producer for NBC’s Today.
Morgado began his career as an associate producer at WPLG-10, the ABC affiliate in Miami.
According to various news reports, hundreds of CNN staffers were laid off on December 1 as part of wider cost-cutting measures at CNN parent company Warner Bros. Discovery.
