Jeff Zucker eyeing mayoral run in 2021?

There is renewed speculation that WarnerMedia News chairman Jeff Zucker, who is president of CNN and the newly-installed executive in charge of Turner Sports, is eyeing a run for mayor of New York City in 2021, reports Page Six.

When reached for comment by Page Six, CNN didn’t comment on the rumor Zucker is eyeing a run for political office.

In 2016, there were reports Zucker wanted a new job. However, he denied he was running for mayor adamantly, saying at the time, “It is 10 times 100 percent not true.”

But an insider pushed back on Zucker’s statement, saying in 2016, “Politics is something [Zucker] thinks about.”
