Zucker Resigns As CNN President After Relationship Was Uncovered

Through the course of investigating CNN’s disgraced anchor Andrew Cuomo, it was uncovered that CNN President Jeff Zucker had an undisclosed consensual relationship with a colleague, forcing Zucker to step down from CNN.

As reported by the New York Times, Zucker sent a memo out alerting CNN employees of his departure.

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

As a result, I am resigning today.

I came to CNN on January 28, 2013. Together, we had nine great years. I certainly wish my tenure here had ended differently. But it was an amazing run. And I loved every minute.

I am grateful to the thousands of incredibly talented CNN and Turner Sports employees who helped make this such a joy for me, and a success for all of us.

I wish each of you nothing but the best in the years ahead.

With gratitude and much love.
