Allison Gollust has stepped down from her role at CNN following a third-party investigation into the news network amid recent controversy surrounding Chris Cuomo and Jeff Zucker.

The announcement was made in a memo from WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar that was shared with The Hollywood Reporter. 

“Based on interviews of more than 40 individuals and a review of over 100,000 texts and emails, the investigation found violations of Company policies, including CNN’s News Standards and Practices, by Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust, and Chris Cuomo,” Kilar’s memo read, in part.

Zucker resigned as chairman of WarnerMedia news and sports, and the president of CNN, earlier this month after he was asked about a personal relationship with Gollust, who led marketing and communications for CNN.

The questioning was part of the network’s investigation into Cuomo, who was fired in December for conduct relating to brother Andrew Cuomo after the then-New York governor was accused of sexual harassment.
