Born and raised in wealthy section of St James, New York, O’Brien created her net worth through being a revered anchorwoman for CNN.

O’Brien then joined NBC in 1991, taking on the job as field producer for programmes, The Nightly News and Today. Field producer went on to worked as local reporter for NBC’s KRON in San Francisco. Whilst at NBC, O’Brien anchored the Weekend morning show and The Site, an award-winning technology show. Furthermore, field producer co-anchored numerous shows, including Weekend Today with David Bloom, Today Show along with the weekend variant of the Nightly News. In 2003, Soledad moved to CNN, where she co host the morning show, American Morning, with Miles O’Brien (no connection.) By 2007 field producer was replaced by a younger model Kiran Chetry, because of poor ratings. Field producer’s worker Miles O’Brien was also axed from the show.

Since then O’Brien continued to work as a reporter for CNN, largely hosting one-off special documentaries. In early 2012, the award-winning reporter became an anchorwoman for CNN’s Starting Point. For her contribution to news, O’Brien won numerous awards — she received the NAACP President Award back in 2007 and was name the Journalist of the Year from the National Association of Journalists in 2010. The anchorwoman is also known for her great mishaps. In 2008, O’Brien was greatly criticised for her coverage during the McCain/Palin campaign: she for falsely reported that Sarah Palin had cut the education budget by 62 per cent. The truth is, Palin increased the budget.
