Allison Gollust, Jeff Zucker’s secret girlfriend at CNN, resigns after an investigation.

On Tuesday, February 15, Allison Gollust, CNN’s top marketing officer and the love partner of recently departed CNN CEO Jeff Zucker, resigned.

Gollust, 49, was a key factor in the ouster of ex-CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, according to WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar in a letter released by CNN reporter Brian Stelter, although she had a long-term relationship with her employer, Zucker.

Zucker, 56, resigned on February 2 after admitting to having a consensual relationship with another CNN executive at the time, commonly assumed to be Gollust.

After Zucker resigned, divorced Gollust, who lived in the same building as Zucker, continued at the company for two weeks till the Chris Cuomo probe was concluded.

Cuomo was abruptly fired in December after the same inquiry revealed that he attempted to assist his friend.

Kilar said Tuesday that a third-party investigation was finished over the weekend and discovered Zucker and Gollust had a long-term relationship.

“The inquiry uncovered violations of Company standards, including CNN’s News Standards and Practices, by Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust, and Chris Cuomo, based on interviews with more than 40 people and an examination of over 100,000 texts and emails,” Kilar stated.

Kilar stated, “I understand this news is difficult, disheartening, and frankly, terrible to read.” “Many of you are experiencing valid emotions.”

Cuomo was reportedly unhappy with Zucker over his firing and sought to pull his former boss down with him, according to CNN workers. It was an open secret at CNN that Zucker and Gollust were dating.
