In recent years, CNN has struggled to keep pace with fellow cable news rivals Fox and MSNBC.
CNN has 4,000 employees and channels around the globe. The network is expected to generate a record $600 million in profit this year for Turner Broadcasting, the Time Warner Inc. unit that houses CNN.
CNN was founded in 1980 by Ted Turner. Upon its launch, CNN was the first channel to provide 24-hour television news coverage, and the first all-news television channel in the United States.
Since taking over at CNN last month, Zucker has been actively involved in all aspects of the network’s functions. “He is all over everyone at the network,” according to one source. “He is e-mailing everyone, around the clock, the anchors, the control rooms, he has inserted himself into everything. It is great for the network.”
Zucker is currently a member of Temple Emanu-El in New York City
