During the pandemic, Gollust's friendship with Zucker became intimate, she said in a statement. According to the statement, “Jeff and I have been close friends and professional partners for over 20 years. Recently, our relationship changed during Covid.

Katie Couric spoke about Zucker's relationship with Gollust before they both started working at CNN in her memoir 'Going There'. In 1998, Zucker was named president of the corporation. Couric and Zucker had previously worked for NBC. "Jeff made a huge push to bring on" Gollust for the TODAY show, according to Couric, but they had already recruited a publicist. She stated that Zucker set up a meeting between Gollust and her after she told Zucker that they didn't have a job for Gollust on TODAY.

“I had to wonder why Jeff was angling so hard to bring Allison on board,” Couric wrote. “She and her husband and kids had moved into the apartment right about Jeff and Caryn’s–everyone who heard about the arrangement thought it was super-strange. By that point, Caryn had become a close friend and it made me really uncomfortable.”

“On November 29th, Jeff was named president of CNN. His first hire? Allison Gollust,” Couric wrote. “Oh, and I never did hear from him about that job.”
