The former CEO of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN has landed a new media job, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Taking on the job of executive editor of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group’s new site Black Voices is Christina Norman, who was president of MTV before her stint at OWN.

Norman will reportedly launch her new job with an essay for Huffington Post about her departure from OWN.

Said Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group: “It’s a great lesson for women, that when one door closes, another one opens. 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.”
