CNN President Jeff Zucker is scheduled to meet today in Atlanta with the leadership of the National Association of Black Journalists to discuss the state of black journalists at the network, FishbowlDC has learned.
Bob Butler, Vice President of Broadcast for NABJ, posted a note on the group’s Yahoo list serve last night saying that he, President Greg Lee and Executive Director Maurice Foster, will sit down with Zucker today.
The meeting comes on the heels of an announcement last week that morning show anchor and NABJ member Soledad O’Brien is transitioning to a new and less visible role at the network producing documentaries.

CNN is abuzz with changes this morning.
Award-winning anchor and investigative reporter Chris Cuomo is joining the network. He will have “a major role in a new CNN morning show” and across the network, says a release, anchoring and reporting on major events.
The news was announced today by Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide.
“Chris is an accomplished anchor who is already an established name in morning television, as well as a widely respected investigative journalist,” said Zucker. “What I love about Chris is that he is passionate about every story he tells, never forgets about the viewer, and represents the type of journalism that makes CNN great.”
From Cuomo: “This is a fantastic opportunity to do what I value the most and hopefully to do the work that I do best. While it’s very difficult to leave ABC News, a place filled with people I have loved working with for many years, I am excited about my future with CNN.”
ABC’s “20/20″ is airing an exclusive in-depth interview with former Sen. John Edwards‘ mistress Rielle Hunter this Friday at 10 p.m. This morning they give us a little dollop of what to expect. Noteworthy: At one point she talks about herself in third person (pssst.…this is never a good sign.)
Rielle Hunter: No Regrets About Following Her Heart
Some see her as Rielle the man-hunter, Rielle the marriage destroyer or Rielle, the woman who brought down former presidential candidate John Edwards. But Hunter, who in 2008 gave birth to Edwards’ daughter Quinn, told “20/20′s” Chris Cuomo that she is something very different. “First and foremost, I’m a mom,” she said in an exclusive interview Cuomo which will air this Friday. “Reille Hunter is a mom. And I’m also a woman who fell in love with a married man. I’m not the first woman who has done that and I’m not going to be the last.”
Watch a preview clip here.
Stephanopoulos will anchor the broadcast with Robin Roberts and replaces Diane Sawyer, who will become the new anchor of “World News” beginning Dec. 21. Juju Chang has been named the news anchor for “Good Morning America” and Chris Cuomo has been promoted to co-anchor of “20/20″ alongside Elizabeth Vargas. Cuomo has also been named ABC News’ chief law and justice correspondent, reporting for all broadcasts and platforms across the news division. Sam Champion will remain the weather anchor on the morning show.
George will take on the role of chief political correspondent and continue to anchor “This Week” until a replacement is named.

In preparation for NBC’s “Inside the Obama White House” airing tonight, click here to see the Twitpics from the last several days via @InsideObamaWH.
And more of a preview from Brian Williams on the Daily Nightly: “I can promise you this: We will show more of the inner-workings of the White House than ever before. Yes, it will be the view the Obama Administration wanted us to see — but they didn’t get to control all that we recorded, and I’m anxious for our viewers to make their own judgements on what they see.”
Check out CBS’ Katie Couric‘s address at Princeton’s Class Day yesterday on HuffPost. “I am moved to be sharing this special moment with parents and professors who may have woken up to me on the Today show… and with students who MAY wake up in time for the CBS Evening News,” she said. “Although based on the average age of our viewers, I think you’re probably watching ‘Shot at Love with Tila Tequila’ instead.”
Speaking of which… CBS Evening News will be the first nightly newscast to be live streamed on the web, as reported by The Business Insider.
Fox’s Glenn Beck kicked off his comedy tour “Common Sense” last night. He’ll do five shows in five nights around the country- including a stop in Richmond. Learn more about the act here in The Denver Post.
Bill O’Reilly responded on Fox last night to the murder of George Tiller: “When I heard about Tiller’s murder, I knew pro-abortion zealots and Fox News haters would attempt to blame us for the crime. That is exactly what has happened.” More on TVNewser.

WaPo‘s Tom Shales on Conan O’Brien‘s NBC Tonight Show debut last night: “By now The Tonight Show is like the White House; it belongs not to its occupant of the moment but to the American people. So it was not encouraging last night to see Conan O’Brien devoting the entire first half of his first Tonight Show to himself.”

New York asks Is Conde Nast’s Si Newhouse the Last Old-Media Tycoon? “In the last two years, Newhouse has had to close Jane, House & Garden, Men’s Vogue, Golf for Women, Domino, and finally Portfolio. At Conde Nast, the rumor mill, accurate or not, continues to grind. Which will be next? Wired? Architectural Digest? Does the company really need two food magazines? The grim work has taken a toll.”
E&P: The New York Times Magazine, considered the top revenue producer of newspaper Sunday magazines and often ranking among the best ad revenue magazines in the country, is cutting its size by 9 percent. The smaller version of the glossy magazine will debut in two weeks with the June 14th issue.
President Obama travels to Saudi Arabia today and the State Department issued these instructions to members of the traveling WH press corps yesterday (via Swampland): The Saudi government is permitting journalists accompanying President Obama entry into the country without a visa or the usual customs procedures. While in Saudi Arabia, therefore, journalists are expressly prohibited from leaving the hotel or engaging in any journalistic activities outside of coverage of the POTUS visit. Those who do so risk arrest and detention by Saudi authorities.
A correction from the State Department this morning: “Correction: U.S. Embassy Guidance for Journalists – The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh Saudi Arabia would like to recall the inaccurate guidance issued to the White House press corps on June 1.”
And this message from Saudi Ambassador Adel-Al-Jubeir (via Politico): “Journalists are free to go wherever and report on whatever they want,” emails Karen Hanretty of Qorvis Communications, which represents the Kingdom. “As evidence, [Qorvis's] Michael [Petruzzello] is going to help facilitate media inquiries and requests.”
