Also, Gollust still works for CNN. Gollust’s CNN profile states that she has worked as a key spokesperson for the news brand.

Allison is currently reported to be in a relationship with Jeff Zucker (former President of CNN worldwide). Neither Allison nor Jeff are married. Apparently both are divorced. Allison was first married to her ex-husband Billy Hult and Zucker was married to his ex-wife named Caryn Zucker. Zucker divorced his ex-wife in 2018. In one of her statements, Allison described how she came into contact with sugar during the time of the pandemic.

She explained that she and Jeff have both been in close friendship and professional partnership for over 20 years. But their relationship has recently changed during COVID. She said she still regrets her decision to disclose things at the wrong time. She added that she is proud of the time she has spent at CNN and looks forward to continuing the great work.


Another personality to come into the picture is Katie Couric, who also worked with Jeff Zucker for NBC. Katie gave her statement in her memoir that Zucker pushed hard to hire Allison Gollust. She explained that both partners started their relationship before they both started working at CNN. Jeff Zucker became President of CNN in 1998. Both Katie Couric and Zucker previously worked for NBC.

Katie wrote in her memoir that Jeff tried hard to bring gollust to the TODAY show, but the company has already hired a PR rep. Sugar and Gollust joined at the hip. Zucker arranged a meeting between Gollust and Couric after Couric confirmed they didn’t need another person for any job. At the meeting, she said again that there was no vacancy for Gollust.

Relationship with Jeff Zucker

Both Zucker and Gollust were married at the time they met. Gollust’s family moved into an apartment above Zucker’s apartment where he used to live with his wife named Caryn Zucker. Katie Couric confirmed she was wondering how tough it was for Jeff and how tough it was for Allison as they both wanted to get on board. Allison lived with her husband and had children. She moved with her family right above Zucker’s family’s apartment. Over time, Caryn became a close friend and made everyone uncomfortable getting close to each other.

Couric later wrote that Zucker had been fired from his job, but that he had asked Couric to put in a good word for him on CNN, where it was time to seek a president. He also said if she wanted there would be a job for Allison Gollust too. Later, due to Couric’s efforts, Jeff was named president of CNN on November 29, and he hired Allison Gollust, who became his first hire. Jeff remained President of CNN from January 2013 to February 2022.
