*Soledad O’Brien is taking her talents to HBO.
The news anchor, who left CNN in March, is staying in the Turner family by joining HBO‘s “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel,” reports Deadline.com. Additionally, O’Brien and her production company, Starfish Media Group, have entered a first-look deal with HBO for scripted projects and long-form programming concepts.
O’Brien also has a deal to continue to produce documentaries for CNN, including two installments of her “Black In America” series. “Real Sports” reunites two former “Today” hosts — Gumbel co-anchored the weekday show, while O’Brien co-hosted the weekend edition before moving to CNN, where she anchored morning programs “American Morning” and “Starting Point.”
