  •  Sounds like morning shows aren't her thing (14+ / 0-)
    So she will be a free agent, hosting documentaries for CNN part-time, but able to take hosting and reporting jobs elsewhere at the same time. She could go the syndication route, as Katie Couric has. On Thursday, Ms. O’Brien appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show,” a syndicated daytime talk show.

    However, “at this moment, I really want to work on projects,” she said.
    She said she would not miss the 2 a.m. wake-up calls that “Starting Point” necessitated.

    “To do the thing that you’re really passionate about,” she said, “is a very nice luxury, and that’s what I am getting to do now.” (source)

    If she's being sincere, this could be a good move for her.
    The decision to have her supply documentaries makes sense because CNN has been moving from an in-house production model to an outside acquisition model. The channel is working with several outside production companies on weekend programming, and it is also buying the rights to documentary films.

    CNN said that Ms. O’Brien would host at least one documentary this year, and three next year.

    I'm a Democrat - I believe that government has a positive role to play in the lives of ordinary people.
