CNN President Jeff Zucker resigned from his position Wednesday after admitting he had a “relationship” with a coworker.
“Jeff Zucker just announced his resignation to a stunned CNN,” posted CNN’s Brian Stelter on Twitter.
Read Zucker’s full memo below:
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 such a success for all of us. I wish each of you nothing but the best in the years ahead.
With gratitude and much love.
