Allison Gollust is the network’s main spokesperson and has been the subject of recent news regarding president Jeff Zucker’s sudden resignation. Here’s some context.
Gollust is CNN’s primary spokesperson. She has worked for the company since 2013, before which she spent 15 years at NBC. In 1996, she joined NBC as a corporate communicator. A year later, in 1997, she became Today’s senior publicist.
We try to pin down Allison Gollust’s age
Assuming, as previously stated, that NBC was her first graduate work – and that she is in fact a university graduate – Gollust’s age would be approximately 47 or 48 years old, however it might be higher or lower depending on how many years she studied and whether she obtained a postgraduate degree.
She could have been in her mid-to-late twenties when she began working for NBC, in which case her age in 2022 would be closer to 50.
Where has her career taken her?
Gollust currently leads marketing, publicity, and public relations departments in New York, Washington DC, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. She also is responsible for CNN’s on-air advertising and events.
She previously worked as Governor Andrew Cuomo’s press secretary, which is why she has become a news story today.
She’s also served as executive vice-president of corporate communications at NBC Universal. MSNBC debuted the same year as NBC. She’s handled responsibilities at NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC, and The Weather Channel since then, as well as on major shows such as Dateline and Meet The Press.
She and Jeff Zucker have known each other for a long time. According to Politico, in a 2013 statement, he said: “I’ve relied on Allison’s judgment, counsel, and connections for the last 15 years.”
Jeff Zucker and Allison Gollust’s estimated age difference
Jeff Zucker was born on April 9, 1965. He is 56 years old now. Later this year, he will be 57. That’s correct. Based on today’s rumors, this could imply that Zucker is roughly a decade older than Gollust, although without confirmation of her actual age, it’s difficult to say for sure.
From there, he met Caryn Nathanson and married her in 1996. She was a Saturday Night Live supervisor at the time. They divorced in 2019, after he took a six-week break to undergo heart surgery. Billy Hult was married to Allison Gollust. In May 2006, the New York Post congratulated them on the arrival of Ava Francis.
