CNN Chief's 14-Year-Old Son Put On Board of Corey Booker Online Start Up

The Daily Mail reports that Cory Booker, a Democrat currently running to be the next United States Senator from New Jersey, put CNN boss Jeff Zucker’s 14year-old son on the board of his online start-up company — and awarded the kid stock options:

It has been revealed that Newark mayor and Senate hopeful Cory Booker appointed the 14-year-old son of the president of CNN onto the advisory board of his tech start-up.

Booker, who is hoping to become the next Democratic Senator representing New Jersey, helped found a video sharing company, and financial filing papers released this week show that he put a teenager on the company’s steering committee.

Andrew Zucker, the 14-year-old son of CNN’s Jeff Zucker, now holds stock options in Waywire, the fledgling video start-up, while most of his peers are reliant on their allowance. …

The financial disclosure indicates that his ownership stake could earn him anywhere between $1million and $5million, but the company does not appear anywhere near ready to turn over such a profit.

The Times reports that they already had to go through a round of layoffs, but two staffers taht are still around are Andrew Zucker and an unidentified son of one of a Booker supporter who is now employed by Booker’s Senate campaign.

 

Booker is considered a rising star in the Democratic party. There was even talk earlier this month about him running for president or accepting the nomination for vice president.
