As the host and executive producer of the new 13 episode true crime series “Mysteries & Scandals” on OXYGEN, and host of "Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien," a weekly political magazine show syndicated across the country on hundreds of TV stations, Soledad has established herself as one of the most recognized names in broadcasting by telling the stories behind the most important issues, people, and events of the day. A champion of diversity, she gives voice to the underserved and disenfranchised through her Emmy-winning reporting and acclaimed documentary series, “Black in America” and “Latino in America.” While also the contributing editor, reporting in-depth news magazine pieces for "PBS NewsHour" and correspondent for "HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."
