Soledad O'Brien Actor

Soledad o brien

María de la Soledad Teresa O'Brien (born September 19, 1966) is an American broadcast journalist. She is the anchor of CNN's morning news program Starting Point which premiered on January 2, 2012 and airs weekdays from 7:00 am to 9:00 am ET. Along with Early Start, Starting Point replaced American Morning, which aired from 2001 to 2011. O'Brien co-anchored American Morning from July 2003 to April 2007, with Miles O'Brien. Their common surname is coincidental. After leaving the morning anchoring position, O'Brien worked with the "In America" documentary unit on CNN. O'Brien's parents, both immigrants, met at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 1958. My parents were both immigrants—my mother from Cuba, my father from Australia. Both attended daily Mass at the church near campus. Every day my father would offer my mother a ride. Every day, she declined. Finally she said yes. One year later, the day after Christmas, the two of them were married. O'Brien's parents married in 1958 in Washington, D.C. Her father Edward, an Australian (from Toowoomba, Queensland) of Irish descent, was a mechanical engineering professor.
