Howard Stringer, Jeff Zucker Among Those Considered For Top CNN Post

CNN is still actively searching for its new worldwide president, who will replace Jim Walton when he steps down at the end of the year. As we have noted before, former “Today” EP and NBC universal CEO Jeff Zucker is one of the names being considered. The New York Post‘s Claire Atkinson has a few more today.

Among them: former CBS News president and Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer (pictured right), former NBC news president and current WNYC CEO Neal Shapiro and former ABC News chief David Westin.

“We should know something in a month, perhaps before the elections,” said one CNN insider. “Unlike CNN International, we just don’t have someone with a mission.

“We need our Roger Ailes,” the source said, referring to the chief of Fox News, which toppled ratings leader CNN years ago and has since widened its lead.

Time Warner execs are also getting help internally. Sources say HBO boss Richard Plepler is playing a key role in advising Bewkes.
