Former CEO of the Oprah’s OWN Network Now Hired as Executive Editor of Black Voices
Christina Norman has a new job. The executive who served as CEO of OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network for just two years, before being removed in May due to the network’s poor ratings performance, has been hired as the new executive editor of Black Voices, which AOL Huffington Post Media Group is expected to relaunch later this week.
“It’s a great lesson for women, that when one door closes, another one opens,” said Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of HPMG. “There is enormous pressure on high-profile women to succeed, to constantly prove themselves. I met Christina in Los Angeles when she was the head of OWN. After she left, I asked her if she wanted to do something completely different.”
Norman will launch the new gig with a Huffington Post essay about the circumstances of her departure from OWN, according to IndieWire.
