  • CNN’s Soledad O’Brien has already lined up the next chapter in her career.

    Amid rumors that her morning show “Staring Point” was close to an ending point, new CNN boss Jeff Zucker announced Thursday that he has reached a deal to help O’Brien fund her own production company, titled Starfish Media Group. The company will also develop theatrical and scripted television projects.

    O’Brien said the deal will let her do what she wants to do most, confronting difficult topics and telling underreported stories. She’ll also have the opportunity to own her work and the production company is able to sell material to outlets other than CNN.

    As for CNN, her employer since 2003, she’ll make three documentaries for the channel and continue as host of the “Black in America” documentary series, which includes a new one for 2013 .

    With “Starting Point” in its last days, Zucker said he is developing a new morning show around Chris Cuomo, who is expected to be teamed with Erin Burnett.
