O'Brien has been with CNN since 2003 when she was anchor of 'American morning.' She's now anchor of CNN's current morning show, 'Starting Point,' - a gig that began in January of 2012. The show runs from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Soledad O'Brien says losing her job as CNN's morning host is a 'win-win' because her show has been understaffed and essentially ignored by the network.
O'Brien's firing is one of many major personnel moves made by the network's new chief, Jeff Zucker, who offiically took the reins in January.
She said she knew early on that she wouldn't be part of Zucker's plans for CNN.
'Jeff made it clear that he had a very different vision,' she said, 'and we're going to see how that unfolds. It was never about would I stay or would I go.'

Soledad was about as useless as Don Lemon . . . maybe Soledad will get a gig at Al Jazeera.
Yeah right what she said /sarc
What really happened was her show attracted viewers but the wrong kind. Minority viewers. Advertisers would see the audience numbers and breakdown and shy away
The liberal racists at CNN said as much in a tweet or email or memo that surfaced, that they immediately tried to deep-six. The CNN management obviously does not believe in affirmative action for shows that pull in the minority viewers
Win-Win? Sounds more like Spin-Spin from the gal named after a California prison.
Just wonder when CNN whacks The Mummy, Wolf Blitzer. He is a talking coma...
Soledad O’Brien says she was “understaffed” and “ignored.”
I figure that means that she lacked her accustomed lackey whose job was to polish her toenails. As a result, she had to waste her time going to a manicurist.
Will we know it is her under the burkha?
“Soledad was about as useless as Don Lemon”
Which one is more interested in wearing woman’s clothes?
I agree, Soledad is not suited to a news organization.
Sounds like something Charlie Sheen would say...Ever notice you never see the two of them at the same place at the same time???
Don't forget the bottom line. The guilt ridden white liberal yuppie has a lot more disposable income than those he claims to champion. It's all about advertising bucks.
A nasty, vile racist with an IQ below room temp....
Come to think of it, I never see Mickey and Minnie Mouse at the same place and same time either. Are you saying that Mickey is really Minnie in drag?
A nasty, vile racist with an IQ below room temp....
I always did think Soledad could use a good staff now and again.
Anything to shut her up.
Of course she’s happy..now she can get unemployment benefits like the rest of the Obama drones
I was kind of thinking of getting her to stamp her widdo foots.
Arriba! Arriba! Ole! Sole!
Um, Solie, that's usually your first clue...when they don't provide you with basic things like a full staff and they ignore you.
Yes, after the elction they had no need for this race-pimping bubble-headed token...
It’s a win for everybody but her. CNN will still suck, but somebody else will get paid to do the sucking. Now they need to get rid of Morgan, Lemon, and the rest.
Yeah, but she’s kinda hot.
She's not named after the prison and she's not actually African-American. Her father was a White Australian and her mother was Afro-Cuban.
Soledad O'Brien goes along with the whole "Black in America" thing as part of her career, but it's not really what her life has been about.
She was actually named "María de la Soledad Teresa O'Brien" after the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Gee Soledad do you suppose your firing had anything to do with ratings below that of the Cartoon Network? Maybe she can find her ethnic roots as a game show host on Univision.
Same as her god Barrack Obama she has zero slave blood but has benefited from affirmative action scams. Eric Holder is also an affirmative action scammer... from Barbados. Zero slave blood.
Soledad O'Brien married a very white looking guy. How come she did not marry a fellow affirmative action beneficiary? She is no darker than some Greeks and Italians you find in America
She has learned from the master:
Geraldo Rivera likes to play the outraged Hispanic when it comes to immigration but only his father is Hispanic. He has been married five times but never to an Hispanic woman.
Geraldo Rivera Spouse
Erica Michelle Levy
Geraldo’s mother is Jewish which he never talks about
I’m going to miss Solddad. She is a brave, but snippy, little pit yorkie.
She stands for something, but give me an hour or so and I’ll figure out what that something is.
The networks are choked full of useless wierdos.
There’s the two lesbians: Degenerate and Madcow. Then there’s the proud homosexual Anderson Cooper or Cooper Anderson; anyway the pervert with two last names. The perky Caty Couric is enough to make one heave. We musn’t forget Mr. Ed the horsefaced host and never forget Al Sharpton.
I’ll take Gilfoyle, Perino, Megyn, and that nice, cute little Greek girl on The Fives, whose name escapes me at the moment.
Why is it that the other nutworks have a gaggle of wierdos? Of course most leftist females and males are usually as ugly as their creed.
With the exception of the token fatheaded left winger, I really look forward to that five o’clock program and so do the other inmates here at the rest home.
Who really watches this crap! I haven’t watched CNN except I did see a commercial @ the airport 4 years ago!
It amazes me that people watch these baffoons on TV and for what reason!
What makes anyone think these pundits are the pathway to any thing! Read the print! Make your own judgement! I’s so sad The Dixie Chicks did not get a fast track political show on one of the Idiot networks! Do you have to have some Idiot to tell you what is what? To let some mouthpiece sway your view of the world is stupidity no matter what Network manages to to tweak your brain! Oh and the Bubble Headed Bleach Blonde Still comes on @ 5!
O'Brien's firing is one of many major personnel moves made by the network's new chief, Jeff Zucker, who offiically took the reins in January.Press sec'y for Zero? A gig with PBS or NPR?
...and that nice, cute little Greek girl on The Fives, whose name escapes me at the moment....
Andrea Tantaros. I got dibs on her...I saw her first, LOL
Let me jump in here, I consider it a win-win-win
