John King and Dana Bash separate; CNN stars were married four years

Separated: Dana Bash, 40, and John King, 48, after less than four years of marriage, a friend of the CNN stars confirmed to us Tuesday. The veteran political reporters — he’s the anchor of an eponymous prime-time show, she’s senior congressional correspondent — went public with their office romance in summer of 2007 and married on Cape Cod in May 2008. King, a Roman Catholic by birth, converted to Judaism before their wedding. Just last June, she gave birth to their first child, a boy named Jonah. (Both were previously wed; he has two teenagers by his first marriage.) Though still seen together in CNN reports, we’re told they’ve been living apart for the last several months. “They continue to co-parent their young son and to work together with the utmost professionalism,” their friend told us. “They ask that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.” Said another friend: “It’s been a very difficult process getting to this point, one that neither party wanted.”
