The company announced Thursday that it is ending the media analysis show that has aired in various iterations for 30 years. Its last episode will be this Sunday.

“Stelter came to CNN from The New York Times as the nation’s finest media reporter. He leaves CNN as an impeccable broadcaster,” she said in a statement. “We’re proud of what Brian and his team have accomplished over the years, and we’re confident their impact and influence will long outlive the series.”

Stelter added that he was grateful for his nine years at CNN and “proud of what we’ve accomplished on Reliable Sources and so grateful to the viewers who tuned in weekly for our review of media, truth and stories. that shape our world.”

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly news-focused show at a time when it has never been more consequential,” he said in a statement to CNN Business. “I will have more to say on Sunday.”

Besides being an on-air personality, he also served as a media editor for CNN.com. Since joining The New York Times in 2013, Stelter has covered the media industry, including pop culture, cable news and politics. Stelter also hosted a podcast and frequently wrote and edited a daily “Reliable Sources” newsletter with fellow journalist, Oliver Darcy.

CNN’s media coverage will not end with Stelter’s departure. CNN’s Digital Media Team and Reliable Sources newsletter will continue with Darcy heading up the newsletter.
