CNN president Jeff Zucker has renewed his contract with the news network through the 2020 presidential election, according to a new report.
“I’ve learned that the veteran broadcast executive, who has served as president of Time Warner’s cable news channel since 2013, signed a new deal several months ago that will keep him at CNN through the 2020 election,” writes Joe Pompeo of Vanity Fair.
Nielsen Media Research reported the network’s ratings suffered a major collapse in May as the Fox News Channel dominated the cable news wars.
Of all the major news networks, CNN experienced the biggest drop in primetime viewership, down a full 25 percent in May.
President Trump taunted the CNN executive on Twitter in April, calling him “Little Jeff.”
