CNN President Resigns After Disclosure of Romantic Relationship With Top Staffer

From a New York Times story by Michael M. Grynbaum and John Koblin headlined “Jeff Zucker Resigns From CNN After Relationship With Top Executive”:

Jeff Zucker resigned as the president of CNN and the chairman of WarnerMedia’s news and sports division, writing in a memo that he had failed to disclose to the company a romantic relationship with another senior executive at CNN.

Mr. Zucker, 56, is among the most powerful leaders in the American media and television industries. The abrupt end of his nine-year tenure immediately throws into flux the direction of CNN and its parent company, WarnerMedia, which is expected to be acquired later this year by Discovery Inc. in one of the nation’s largest media mergers.
