Marriage, Husband, and Kids

Bolduan is married to Michael David Gershenson. Bolduan converted to Judaism before her marriage to Michael. When Bolduan got pregnant, her fellow female CNN staffers got upset after the network permanently replaced her while she was on maternity leave. Alisyn Camerota was only supposed to be temporarily filling in for Bolduan’s role alongside Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira. While the world was witnessing the terrorist attack in France, CNN announced that Bolduan would be replaced by Ms. Camerota permanently.

CNN defended their decision with research that showed New Day had ratings boost with Camerota. CNN also felt Bolduan lacked chemistry with her co-anchors. Still, many of the female staffers felt CNN should have waited until Bolduan returned from maternity leave before making any changes. They felt it was disrespectful to females to make that sort of a decision while a new mom is trying to ease into a new life.
