Former American Morning and later, Starting Point anchor Soledad O’Brien is going to have to set her alarm awfully early again beginning next Tuesday through Friday, reports CNN’s Brian Stelter.
She will be filling in on CBS News’ CBS This Morning, in for host Gayle King.
Chris Licht, the show’s executive producer, explained the decision to get an outsider. “We are lucky to have the best anchor team in the morning — but they can’t work 52 weeks a year. So, from time to time we will try something interesting and a little unpredictable to keep up the momentum even when one of our main anchors is off.”
Following the cancelation of her CNN show, O’Brien continued to do a few specials for CNN, mainly her Black in America specials.
