Gollust, who formerly led communications at NBC Universal, will be reunited with her old boss Jeff Zucker. Gollust will “work closely” with Zucker, but will report to Jeff Matteson, the senior VP of communications for Turner Broadcasting.
She will also be leaving one Cuomo to work with another: Governor Cuomo’s younger brother Chris Cuomo is an anchor at CNN.
“In the 15 years that Allison and I have worked together, I’ve depended on her judgment, counsel and relationships,” said Zucker in a statement. “Allison is joining CNN at an exciting time, and she and the strong communications team she’s inheriting will play a critical role in shaping the organization and its story going forward. It’s great to have her at CNN.”
CNN senior VP of communications Christa Robinson will be leaving the company after 14 years, according to a memo to staff sent by Zucker. The note is after the jump.
