While Jeff Zucker and the gang are blowing up and taking the news out of Headline News, Nancy Grace is staying to report on missing kids and white women for a while longer. 

The NY Post says that contrary to reports, Grace has inked a new deal.  

The host of HLN’s long-running “Nancy Grace” has signed a new, multi-year deal to remain the centerpiece of the network’s prime-time lineup through at least 2017.

Grace tells the NY Post that she was approached back in July about a contract extension by CNN chief Jeff Zucker, who also oversees sister network HLN. (Zucker brought in Albie Hecht as HLN’s EVP/GM in September.)

“I’m overwhelmed, happy and really looking forward to working with Albie and Jeff,” she said. “I’m all about crime and justice and that part of my show will stay the same. We might change [the show] up a bit, but my goal has and always will be helping to find missing people, especially children, and helping solve homicides and highlight [criminal] cases I think people should know about.”
