Starting Point marks the return of former American Morning anchor, Soledad O'Brien. American Morning was created in the months following the September 11th attacks and was based in New York City. O'Brien left the morning anchor job to work on CNN documentaries and special programming in 2007.
Her 2009 project, Latino in America, was a wide-ranging look at Latinos living in this country. Earlier that year, O’Brien reported for Black in America 2, a four-hour documentary focusing on successful community leaders who are improving the lives of African-Americans. O’Brien’s original Black in America in 2008 was a revealing look at the state of Black America 40 years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
She will debut on Starting Point live from Des Moines, Iowa on January 3, 2012.
The shows will be up against cable favorites Fox News' Fox and Friends, and MSNBC's Morning Joe, and the major network morning shows such as NBC's Today.
You can follow the new shows on Twitter and Facebook.
