John Stankey, in charge of CNN, Turner and HBO following AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner last week, told the New York Times he doesn’t expect to be meddling in creative affairs at WarnerMedia (formerly Time Warner). “People who are running the creative process are professionals at running the creative process. I don’t believe that AT&T – the historical AT&T – by its nature brings much capability or intellectual property to do that better,” Stankey told the paper. “The question is, are we going to have a different attitude or approach to it? The answer is, probably not.”
