The lucky winner will have lunch with President of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker, at Porterhouse Steak inside the Time Warner Center in NYC! 

Jeff Zucker is the president of CNN Worldwide, where he oversees its 23 branded news and information businesses, including CNN’s U.S. television network, CNN International, HLN and CNN Digital.

Zucker is the former president and CEO of NBC Universal. He spent more than two decades at NBC, assuming the top position in February 2007. He headed up the $16 billion global media and entertainment content company, which includes the NBC broadcast network, its news division and all of its cable entities, including MSNBC, CNBC, USA, Bravo, Oxygen and Syfy. Earlier, he had been president of the NBC Universal Television Group from May 2004, rising to chief executive officer of the NBC Universal Television Group in December 2005. Prior to that, he was president of the Entertainment, News & Cable Group since December 2003, and president of NBC Entertainment since December 2000.

Zucker’s meteoric ascent at NBC began during his nearly eight-year tenure as the executive producer of NBC News’ Today. Under his leadership, the morning show propelled to the No. 1 position, which it consistently held throughout his term. Zucker was named executive producer of Today in January 1992 at age 26, which made him the youngest executive producer in the program’s history. Concurrent with his role at Today, he served as executive producer of NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw in February and March 1993.

Zucker joined NBC in 1986 as a researcher for NBC Sports’ coverage of the 1988 Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea. From 1986 to 1988, he traveled the world, compiling and writing background information for NBC Sports commentators and producers. In January 1989, he joined NBC News as a field producer for Today.

Prior to joining CNN, Zucker co-created and executive produced "Katie," the syndicated daytime show starring Katie Couric. A five-time Emmy Award winner, Zucker graduated from Harvard College in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in American history. He served as president of The Harvard Crimson from 1985 to 1986. Born and raised in Miami, Zucker and his wife have four children and reside in New York.
