TV journalist to speak at CU-Boulder


Soledad O'Brien – an American broadcast journalist, executive producer and philanthropist – will speak at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4, at CU-Boulder in Macky Auditorium. Her speech topic will be "Creating Trust: The Media and its Viewers." The Distinguished Speakers Board is bringing her to campus.

Tickets for the event are free for CU Students with a valid Buff OneCard and $8 for the community. Tickets are available on the first floor of the University Memorial Center (UMC) at the Distinguished Speakers Board Table, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Limited community tickets are available online at

“We chose Soledad O’Brien because we hadn't yet brought someone with a journalism background, and her many years of experience as a broadcast journalist and producer made her the most ideal candidate to speak about the media,” said Irfan Nadiadi, chair of the Distinguished Speakers Board. “Controversy in the media has always been a hot topic and this will be a great opportunity for people to learn more about what goes on behind the facade of media.”

O’Brien is perhaps best known for her work as a CNN anchor. She has also worked with “NBC Nightly News” and HBO’s “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel.”
