Soledad O’Brien may not be on CNN everyday anymore, but she’s hardly slowed down. Now the head of her own production company, she’s doing another Black In America documentary this time focused around “Stop and Frisk,” she’s on Al-Jazeera network, and she’s the keynote speaker at the 27th annual Martin Luther King breakfast in Jacksonville, Floridaon Friday.
O’Brien’s absence from CNN has not gone unnoticed, although she still does the “Black in America” series for the network. CNN has struggled to find a balance since parting ways with popular anchors like O’Brien, T.J. Holmes and others. O’Brien says she’s enjoying her new life as head of her own company, no longer forced to get up at 2 a.m. to anchor a morning show.
