Toothsome biracial newscaster Soledad O'Brien began her television career fetching coffee as an unpaid intern at Boston station WBZ. Then she landed a news producer gig at KRON-TV in San Francisco, but was quickly promoted to on-air talent. Then she got lured away to host The Site on the ZDTV cable network, where she reached a national audience starring opposite goofy computer-generated espresso bar schlub Dev Null (voiced by current TechTV personality Leo Laporte). From there it was a quick hop to hosting increasingly-higher-profile news programs on MSNBC (and parent organization NBC) and now CNN.
