CNN statement: “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“

Sanchez did not host his show today. Brooke Baldwin stood in, though the show was still technically called “Rick’s List.” Moving forward, CNN will now run “CNN Newsroom” from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Sanchez has been under fire since appearing Thursday on a satellite radio show hosted by Pete Dominick. Sanchez told Dominick that he believed Jon Stewart was a “bigot” — and then went on to suggest that he believed CNN was run by Jews.
