CNN honcho Jeff Zucker taking six week leave

CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker announced some surprise news in this morning’s meeting, according to CNN’s own media reporter, Brian Stelter. As Stelter revealed on Twitter, “He will be taking a six week leave for elective surgery to address a heart condition he has had for 10 years.”

Stelter added, “He assured everyone he is going to be just fine. All of us are wishing him a very speedy recovery.”

Zucker’s man, Michael Bass, executive vice president of programming and a longtime lieutenant of his (they previously worked together on Katie Couric’s program and at NBC Universal) will reportedly oversee editorial matters in his absence.
