ZUCKER WILL STAY

Friends tell me Jeff Zuck­er may drop his plan to depart at year’s end and instead remain head of CNN, as a result of the mas­sive merg­er of AT&T‑Discovery media assets announced Mon­day morning.

Dri­ving the news: I’m told that noth­ing has been decid­ed. But absent this tec­ton­ic media shift, Zuck­er — who’s chair­man, Warn­er­Me­dia News and Sports, and pres­i­dent of CNN World­wide — was gone. Now, the door is open for him to stay.

Why it mat­ters: Zuck­er is one of the world’s most expe­ri­enced media exec­u­tives, run­ning a glob­al machine with an unmatched reach and foot­print. And CNN.com is the largest news-orga­ni­za­tion website.

Dis­cov­ery CEO David Zaslav, who’s golfing/Hamptons bud­dies with Zuck­er, will run the new com­pa­ny, Axios is told.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.

DONT LET THEM WIN THE WAR!
