Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

After much speculation, CNN announced Thursday that Jeff Zucker will be taking over as President of CNN in late January. We’ll take a look back at Zucker’s history at NBC’s Today show and his rise through the ranks at NBC Universal. Does Zucker’s past give us a glimpse at what he might have in store for CNN? Frank Sesno, Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, Fred Francis, former correspondent for NBC News, and David Zurawik, media critic for The Baltimore Sun, discuss the decision to go with Zucker and the future of the network.

Keli Goff, political correspondent for TheRoot.com, and Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor at The National Review, discuss the week in political coverage – from Pres. Obama’s use of social media in the fiscal cliff talks, to media coverage of Amb. Susan Rice and her possible nomination for a cabinet position.

Emily Bell, of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism, discusses the much anticipated report from Judge Brian Leveson on Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World phone hacking scandal. The British controversy has embroiled the press overseas and led Leveson to call for an independent group that makes sure the press meets certain standards of independence and effectiveness. Bell also discusses a British politician suing social media users for re-Tweeting a false accusation leveled at him.

In other news across social media, culture commentator Lola Ogunnaike discusses singer Chris Brown’s vulgar Twitter attack on a comedian, and tweets directed at Matt Lauer criticizing his coverage of the Thanksgiving parade.

This Sunday, 11am ET.
