Secret sexual relationship revealed prompting CNN president to quit

Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN, shocked the media world Wednesday with his sudden announcement that he was quitting the cable news network, effective immediately.

His announcement came less than two months after he personally fired top CNN anchor Chris Cuomo for improperly advising his brother, then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, regarding how to address sexual misconduct allegations.

“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 told employees.

“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,” said Zucker.
