Caryn Zucker Biography – Caryn Zucker Wiki
Caryn Zucker (born Caryn Stephanie Nathanson) is the ex-wife of Jeff Zucker, former CNN Worldwide president. On Wednesday, February 2, 2022, Jeff Zucker resigned from his position as CNN Worldwide president over a consensual relationship with Allison Gollust. Katie Couric, in her October 2021 memoir “Going There” mentioned how Jeff Zucker was “joined at the hip” with Allison Gollust.
Couric hosted NBC’s Today from 1991-2006. Zucker spent two decades at NBCUniversal where he previously served as president and CEO from 2007 to 2011. Couric wrote about how Jeff “made a huge push to bring on Allison Gollust” at 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 details. “They were joined at the hip.”
“The problem was, we’d already hired a PR person for the show. There really wasn’t a role for Allison. Jeff asked me to meet with her anyway. One weekend when I was out in the Hampton, I went over to her home and told her what I’d already told Jeff—that we had the communications piece of it covered and there just wasn’t a job there. What we needed were talented producers. ABC was paying Jeff and me a ton of money; I was also an EP of the show, and my name was on it. I felt a certain responsibility to spend the money wisely and have some real agency in the decision-making. I had to wonder why Jeff was angling to hard to bring Allison on board. She and her husband and kids had moved into the apartment right above Jeff and Caryn’s —everyone who heard about the cozy arrangement thought it was super-strange. By that point, Caryn [Jeff Zucker’s ex-wife] had become a dose friend and it made me really uncomfortable.”
