Soledad O'Brien and Long Form Documentaries for CNN

CNN's Soledad O'Brien tells Media Beat that she travels to New Orleans around 25 times a year. Recently, many of those trips were for production on New Orleans Rising the latest documentary she completed for CNN's In America unit which debuts August 21 at 8pmET.

Soledad, who focuses on long form documentaries for CNN now, says her unit is now working on six documentaries at a time and, while the first "In America" projects initially focused on race, she thinks "the direction is to go wider and broader."




In Part 2 of the video, O'Brien discusses her family, career, and the changes that have taken place in CNN's primetime line-up and in Part 3, she talks about her early experiences as a digital technology reporter.
