Soledad O'Brien will become a special correspondent for Al Jazeera America's flagship primetime show, "America Tonight."
Similar to her new relationship with her former full-time work at CNN, she will also produce documentary specials for the network.
Al Jazeera America has been hiring on-air talent in preparation for its launch in the late summer or early fall. The network has described its format to be less celebrity and politics-focused and interested in pursuing underreported stories.
