CNN is spiraling out of control.Â
Now, the future of CNN boss Jeff Zucker is unclear.
WarnerMedia, the parent company of CNN, and Discovery are set to merge in 2022 and the biggest question surrounding the multibillion-dollar pact is what the future holds for embattled CNN boss Jeff Zucker.
“Jeff isnâ€™t the supreme ruler anymore as was made clear when they made him fire Cuomo. Heâ€™s become a liability with his embarrassing defense of liberal activists like Cuomo, Don Lemon and Jim Acosta,” a longtime media industry executive told Fox News Digital.
The past 12 months have been quite the journey for Zucker, as insiders feel the CNN honcho was unhappy reporting to WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar, who is six years younger than him and more of an expert on streaming than journalism.
In February, Zucker reportedly told CNN staffers he would continue to oversee theÂ liberal networkÂ for the remainder of the year but expected to “move on” when his contract expires at the end of 2021.
“Iâ€™m going to stay and finish my current contract, which, as I said, will keep me here until the end of this year. At that point, I do expect to move on,” he said on a call with CNN employees, according to The New York Times, which cited a CNN staffer who was on the call.
