CNN is sweeping aside its morning-show host, Soledad O’Brien, to make way for new network chief Jeff Zucker’s better idea: a morning show anchored by Chris Cuomo and Erin Burnett.

O’Brien, who has been with CNN since 2003, is being segued into a production and distribution deal with the cable news network.

Under terms of her deal, she will produce three specials for CNN in 2014.

“The new partnership opportunity allows me to focus on what I love to do the most, and to focus on the next stage of my career, owning my own work,” O’Brien said in Thursday’s announcement.
