CNN boss Jeff Zucker is separating from his wife, Caryn, after 21 years of marriage. In a joint statement, the couple who is worth over 50 million dollars, said they realized that their marriage was over and have come to the tough decision together that separating is the only way to go. They went on to state that they would remain friends and that their primary focus is the well being of their four children.
The two lovebirds met at the media network, NBC, when Jeff was an executive producer of the Today show. Caryn was a supervisor for Saturday Night Live. They went on to marry in 1996 in lavish style only royalty and wealthy could afford. They have four children together; three boys and one girl.
Confidentially several friends of the couple have told local news outlets that the couple was growing apart for over a decade now. One friend confirmed that Jeff is a workaholic who is obsessed with news and obsessed with being the best, along with an unhealthy obsession with taking down President Trump. His network promoted during the primaries because they thought he would be the easiest candidate for Hillary Clinton to defeat. Caryn seems to be much more laid back, mellow, and social. She spends a lot of time with their kids and enjoys being part of the Upper East Sidesocial circuit. Perhaps not far from other elitists who claim to know the plight of America’s working class.

“Jeff Zucker Seeks To Assure CNN Staff After Death Threats Cite “Fake News”
CNN Worldwide Chief Jeff Zucker has sought to calm Atlanta staffers after a report that a man had phoned multiple threats to the cable news network’s Atlanta operation, saying he was heading there to “gun” them all down because they are “Fake News.”
In a memo to staff Zucker said he would address the threat and increased security, at his regular weekly broadcast company “town hall.”
FBI arrested the man at his home in the Detroit area last week. CNN on Monday issued a statement: statement saying, “We take any threats to CNN employees or workplaces, around the world, extremely seriously” and “have been in touch with local and federal law enforcement throughout, and have taken all necessary measures to ensure the safety of our people.”
On Sunday, April Ryan, told CNN’s media pundit Brian Stelter that, in the President Donald Trump era, news outlets have “the FBI and local police on speed dial” for death threats against reporters, “for asking questions and reporting.” She counted herself among those who have received death threats.
Ryan concurred with Stelter that the Trump’s ongoing “Fake News” attacks on media are “poisonous,” adding, “There’s a war on the press by the White House, led by this president.”
From Zucker’s email about the “significant security threat that was aimed at our employees at the CNN Center in Atlanta earlier this month”:
I want to make sure you all know that we were in close contact with local and federal law enforcement from the moment the threats were made, throughout the entire investigation, and up until the suspect was arrested last week. We continue to remain in contact with them about this matter.
I know the details of this will seem frightening to some of you, and I understand. I can tell you that, at no time, as these phone calls came in did the federal law enforcement officials feel that there was an immediate threat of danger to any of our employees. With that said, we still stepped up our security procedures in Atlanta and elsewhere, as a precautionary measure.
Sadly, this is part of the reality we live in, as members of the media. I want to assure you that at every level of this company, nothing is more important than your safety. While you know we don’t talk publicly about security measures, let me assure you that we have addressed this situation.
I have a regularly scheduled broadcast town hall on Thursday at 1pm ET. I’ve asked Jeff Gilbert, who heads up Turner Security, to join me to update all of us, with as much detail as he reasonably can, on security at CNN. Please join me then, and send me your questions in advance or during the town hall.”
Did Zucker have an obsession with President Trump? Did that potentially contribute to the end of his marriage? How much did the pressure of President Trump contribute to this divorce that leaves three children in the middle of a million dollar problem?
