Soledad O’Brien Inks Deal with Al Jazeera America
By Yvette Brown
I had always enjoyed watching Soledad O’Brien on CNN’s Morning Show. She is smart, insightful and her quick wit and ability to shut down Conservative blowhards was very entertaining. I was a bit taken aback when she was let go recently.
Yet, apparently you can’t keep a good woman down, because Ms. O’Brien seems to have had a new gig as soon as the CNN ax fell.
She also will be producing for HBO as well so Ms. Soledad has bounced back with full speed ahead.
See Soledad handle of the the biggest loud mouth conservative grandstanders on the block.

According to the Huffington Post: Soledad O’Brien has landed at Al Jazeera America, the broadcaster confirmed Monday morning.
O’Brien, who was formerly an anchor at CNN, will become a special correspondent for the new network’s flagship primetime show, “America Tonight,” and will also produce documentary specials. She is perhaps the highest-profile name to join AJA, which has been on a hiring spree in preparation for its launch in the late summer or early fall.
