Jeff Zucker Kills CNN’s Diversity Council?
FTVLive is reporting that Jeff Zucker has killed CNN’s Diversity Council…
CNN would answer their critics by talking about their diversity council and how they are in place to make sure the network looks closer at the issues when it comes to minorities.
Now, Zucker is disbanding the diversity council.
Word is that Zucker wants to make some personnel changes and some of the people he wants to get rid of, sit on the diversity council.
It appears that Zucker feels like if the council is gone, getting rid of these people will be easier.
Sources tell FTVLive that Zucker has quietly started looking for a replacement for Maria Ebrahimji (right).
Ebrahimji is Executive Editorial Producer and main Booker at CNN. She has been at the network since 2008. She’s also the Vice Chair sitting on CNN’s Diversity Council.
