CNN's top digital editor has left the network after 12 years, the latest staff shakeup after new network boss vowed to ax woke shows and return network to straight news. 

On Friday, Meredith Artley, senior vice president and editor-in-chief of CNN Digital Worldwide, announced that she would be departing the network in a memo to staffers. 

Artley, who said she would be 'around for another week or two' to help with the transition said her 12 years at the company has been 'a rewarding and long run' but that she was excited for her 'next adventure with her family.' 

'I'm so proud to have played a role in guiding, growing and championing CNN's journalism across our digital platforms for all these years,' Artley wrote.
