Soledad O'Brien Named to Power of Women New York Impact List

Every year, Variety honors women across all aspects of the entertainment industry who are making an impact. This year, Soledad O'Brien, host of Matter of Fact, was one of the women named to their Power of Women New York Impact List.

“I think the strength in being straight-talking lies in that it’s actually wrapped up in fact. In order to have a future, you can’t wait around for other people to decide what it will be,” says O’Brien. 

This busy Emmy Award-winning journalist and CEO of her production company, Starfish, also hosts Hearst Television’s weekly news show Matter of Fact and Oxygen’s Mysteries & Scandals and led the panel for Fox’s buzzy “OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession?” in March. 

O’Brien also works at her PowHERful Foundation to mentor young girls.
