The head of the American news channel CNN, Jeff Zucker, announced his resignation due to a secret romantic connection with one of his subordinates. This is reported by CNN with reference to Zucker himself. According to the channel, Zucker was in a relationship with marketing director Allison Gollust: their relationship began at the beginning of the pandemic by mutual consent, but they did not officially announce their relationship.
“During the investigation into the activities of Chris Cuomo (brother of former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, suspected of using his journalistic connections to protect Andrew Cuomo from allegations of harassment. – Approx. Ed.) Asked about the relationship by mutual agreement with my closest colleague, with whom I have worked for over 20 years,” Zucker said in a statement. I should have announced the relationship when it started, but I didn’t. I made a mistake. As a result, I am resigning today.”
