NEW YORK (July 2, 2013)--Former CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien will contribute reports to the new Al Jazeera America network when the network debuts in August.
The network said O'Brien will report for the network's prime-time magazine series, "America Tonight."
Al Jazeera also made a deal with O'Brien's production company to produce hour-long documentaries.
O'Brien is pioneering a new model since leaving CNN this spring, building up her company, Starfish Media Group, in making deals with different media outlets.
She has also signed on to HBO's "Real Sports" as a reporter for the sports-oriented newsmagazine and is under contract to continue making some documentaries for CNN.
