Jeff Zucker, the guiding force behind AT&T's well-known CNN news operation, will take a six-week leave from the company to deal with heart surgery.
A CNN spokeswoman confirmed the details included in a Thurday-morning tweet by Brian Stelter, the network's media correspondent. Zucker, CNN Worldwide's president, will undergo elective surgery to address a condition he has had for ten years. CNN did not offer any further details.
