Zucker on CNN Primetime: ‘We’re Not Under Any Pressure’


By Chris Ariens Comment

jeff-zucker-cnn-embedCNN president Jeff Zucker talked with TVGuide Magazine following his TCA appearance last week during which he criticized Roger Ailes and Fox News. As for that other cable competitor…

TV Guide Magazine: MSNBC’s hosts have been getting into hot water with controversial comments they had to apologize for. Do you think it’s hurt them and helped you?

Zucker: I think all of those things combined affect the brand over time and the cumulative effect takes its toll.

TV Guide Magazine: How soon do you have to make changes to your primetime line-up?

Zucker: We don’t have to do anything. When we find good and smart on-brand programming that’s ready to go we’ll look for a place for it. We’re not under any pressure.
