CNN President Jeff Zucker has announced that he is leaving the network at the end of the year.
Zucker’s exit has been rumored for a few years now, but the rumors increased after President Joe Biden was inaugurated. Zucker’s contract is at the end of the year.
“The truth is, back in November and December I had basically decided that it was time to move on now,” Zucker reportedly said on the company’s daily editorial call. “But since then I’ve had a change of heart. And I want to stay. Not forever, but for another year. And I feel really good about this decision.”
Zucker’s replacement has not been named.
