Biography

As the co-anchor of CNN's flagship morning program, "American Morning," (2002-2011), Soledad O'Brien made a name for herself as an impressive journalist who could secure exclusive interviews with the day's top newsmakers and engage them with a charming on-air personality that deftly softened rather pointed questions. O'Brien began her career on local television in Boston before transitioning to "NBC Nightly News" (1970- ) under Tom Brokaw as a field producer. In 1996, she began her anchoring career on MSNBC and gained enough popularity to be wooed over to CNN to host their morning show. While there, O'Brien covered a number of major stories including the devastating 2004 Pacific tsunami, the 2005 London terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina. Along the way, she earned several awards for her reporting and became one of cable's most recognized faces. In 2007, however, O'Brien was replaced at "American Morning" and returned to reporting duties while hosting several acclaimed documentary series, including "Black in America" (CNN, 2007). Eventually, she returned to the morning anchor chair after "American Morning" was canceled and CNN tapped her to host "Starting Point" (2012- ), where O'Brien continued to earn the respect of audiences, and her fellow journalists.
