Jeff Zucker says, more or less directly, he WILL run for mayor of NYC

mw-ht975_zucker_20191024150900_zqCNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker, who has been musing about running for mayor of New York City publicly since 2015, said in a New York Times interview on Sunday, more or less quite directly, that he will run for mayor of New York in 2021. Zucker’s contract as chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports and president of CNN runs through 2020.

Before noting to the NYT he didn’t want his answer to cause news, Zucker said, “New York City is going to need a very strong mayor in the aftermath of this, and I always like a challenge.”

Regarding the earlier report he was considering a mayoral run, a Zucker insider said, “Politics is something [Zucker] thinks about.”
