CNN Boss Jeff Zucker Resigns Over Affair with Executive

CNN President Jeff Zucker resigned Wednesday for failing to disclose a romantic relationship with Allison Gollust.

She is a CNN executive who once served as communications director for Andrew Cuomo.

Chris Cuomo was fired in December after CNN obtained information about his role in advising his brother Andrew during a sexual harassment scandal.

“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years,” Zucker said.

“I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong,” said Zucker.

For now CNN will be led by three long-time members of its current leadership team: Michael Bass, Amy Entelis and Ken Jautz.

Gollust is keeping her job as CNN executive vice president and chief marketing officer.
