As CNN gets ready to kick off their new morning show next week, the anchor of their old show is headed to HBO.
Soledad O’Brien is joining the team of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumble.
“Soledad is a perfect fit for REAL SPORTS,” said Ken Hershman president, HBO Sports.
“She’s an extraordinary interviewer and storyteller, and we’re thrilled to be able to add her to a franchise where the emphasis is on finding and presenting thought-provoking stories in the diverse and ever-fascinating world of sports.”
In addition to joining Real Sports, O’Brien and her production company, Starfish Media Group, will have an overall relationship with HBO granting the network first look at scripted projects and long-form programming concepts that she and her team develop.
