Soledad O’Brien Named Distinguished Visiting Fellow At Harvard

Soledad O’Brien, who most recently hosted “Starting Point” on CNN, has been named a distinguished visiting fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, the university said in a written statement Wednesday. 

“At HGSE, O’Brien will explore a wide variety of topics related to public education in America – including the influence of income on educational equality, the role of gender specific education, and efforts to overcome racial and ethnic achievement gaps in education,” the university said in its statement. 

O’Brien left the early morning slot at CNN last month. She has said she will continue to produce documentary programs for the network.
