WarnerMedia joins list of companies pulling out of SXSW


AUSTIN (KXAN) — WarnerMedia has joined a number of other big named companies pulling out of SXSW in Austin.

CNN, owned by WarnerMedia, tweeted about the move saying it was a precaution.

Though the company did not further elaborate on the reason, with pressure mounting from Coronavirus concerns, it joins the list of others like TikTok, Facebook and Intel deciding not to participate in the festival that draws thousands of people year after year.

The link meant to describe the company’s role in SXSW on the festivals’ website leads to an error page.

Sessions hosted by the group included a conversation about HBO Max’s plans to make a space for themselves in streaming services.
