Allison Gollust, NBC Universal’s EVP of corporate communications, announced Friday that she was leaving the company, according to Variety.

While she has been VP of corporate communications since 2009, her exit “isn’t a surprise,” according to the article, as she has been chief spokesperson for CEO Jeff Zucker, who the article says will “also depart in the coming weeks.”

Gollust joined NBC in 1998 as a senior publicist at the Today show while Zucker was EP. She previously served as head of communications for the NBC News division. Gollust replaced Cory Shields who moved over to the newly created EVP of global policy strategies and alliances, addressing piracy.
