As AT&T Inc. shuffles the executive ranks within its newly acquired WarnerMedia entertainment empire, CNN is in for a different kind of makeover.

John Stankey, the AT&T executive at the helm of WarnerMedia, is planning to revamp the cable news network’s digital operation, which he believes isn’t reaching its potential and requires more investment in product development and data analytics, according to people familiar with the situation.

Stankey has been steering a reorganization of WarnerMedia that resulted on Feb. 28 in the resignations of Richard Plepler, HBO’s chief executive, and David Levy, the president of Turner, the parent of cable channels CNN, TNT, TBS and the Cartoon Network.
