CNN Is Filled With Awful People

The undisclosed relationship that resulted in CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker’s resignation was previously mentioned in Katie Couric’s recent memoir.

Couric writes about wondering “why Jeff was angling so hard to bring Allison on board” and recalls the time when Gollust “and her husband and kids had moved into the apartment above” the one Zucker shared with his now ex-wife, Caryn Nathanson. (Zucker shares four children with Nathanson. Their divorce was finalized in 2018.)


In Couric’s October 2021 book, Going There, she mentioned how Zucker previously “made a huge push to bring on Allison Gollust” at NBCUniversal. (Zucker previously served as president and CEO of NBCUniversal.)

“When we worked together at NBC, she and Jeff cooked up even bolder ways to draw attention to TODAY and later Jeff himself when he moved to Entertainment,” Couric, 65, details. “They were joined at the hip.”

Couric adds, “The problem was, we’d already hired a PR person for the show. There wasn’t a role for Allison. Jeff asked me to meet with her anyway.”
