CNN is saying farewell to YouTube star Casey Neistat.
The news giant Buzzfeed reported Thursday that CNN will later in the day announce that Neistat and Beme co-founder Matt Hackett are leaving the company., which captures and plays four-second video clips.
Neistat, an online filmmaker who found viral success, has nearly 8.8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. He was supposed to help CNN attract millennials, but that apparently didn't pan out.
A CNN representative wasn't immediately available to comment.
