Is CNN shutting down its operations in Atlanta? No, that's not true: CNN will maintain its hub in Atlanta but move its headquarters from its downtown location to Techwood Turner Broadcasting campus in midtown Atlanta, according to a CNN spokesman who replied to a Lead Stories query on January 20, 2023.
The claim appeared in a post on Facebook on January 19, 2023. This is what it looked like at the time of writing:

CNN spokesperson Bridget Leininger emailed Lead Stories on January 20, 2023, that:
CNN in Atlanta is moving to the Techwood campus this year. While I don't have the exact dates for you, the move will happen in stages and it will finish by the end of this year.
She also offered more details:
And for fun Atlanta facts: The Techwood Campus is where CNN started with Ted Turner, so it's a homecoming of sorts. Our CNN Master Control is already there, and we will join our colleagues with TNT, TBS, TCM, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.
Leininger sent links to several articles confirming that CNN employees are moving to its Techwood campus: Adweek: "CNN's Permanent Move From CNN Center to Techwood Campus Will Conclude This Year," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "Bye bye CNN Center: CNN employees moving to Midtown campus," and the Associated Press: "CNN leaving CNN Center building in downtown Atlanta."
