CNN and legal analyst Sunny Hostin will debut her own legal talk show on Monday night, called “Making the Case,” according to a report on Eurweb.com.

Hostin will co-host the new show with defense attorney Mark Geragos, whom she often sparred with on a round-table show hosted by Anderson Cooper. The new show is a half-hour weekly show set to air at 10:30 pm EST, according to news reports.

Television debating is not new for Hostin, who made her reputation on Fox News by sparring with hosts Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly.  She’s also been a guest host of ABC’s “The View.” She has been the legal analyst for ABC’s “American Morning,” since 2007.

Hostin is a former federal prosecutor who was honored by then attorney general Janet Reno for her prosecution of sex offenders.  She also covered numerous high-profile television cases.

“Sunny Hostin has covered many of the major legal and political stories of today, including the George Zimmerman, Casey Anthony and Conrad Murray trials, Bernie Madoff, Elliot Spitzer, the FLDS polygamy case, the Michael Vick dog fighting ring, OJ Simpson’s civil trial, Brittney Spears’ custody and mental illness battles, the Duke rape scandal, and many more,” her website states.

The show is supposed to run for a trial period of five weeks as part of the experiments by CNN’s chief Jeff Zucker, who is trying to revamp the cable news channel.

Hostin tweeted about the new show saying, “The secret is out! Making the Case w/ Sunny Hostin & @markgeragos debuts on Monday, March 10th at 10pm @CNN Spread the word!!”

Hostin is married and has two kids. They live in New York.

  1. CONGRATS!!!! TO MY GIRL!!!! it's ALWAYS refreshing and good to know that "our people" come into their own show, and receive those nice, steady, continuous checks. she deserves this most definitely with all of the fill-ins she's done. will be tuning in indeed every night.

  2. Hey. It's a female, with European features. Who would have thunk it?

  3. See! Having an education, smarts and an opinion does not make you an
    "ANGRY BLACK WOMEN", just an intelligent African-American woman.

  4. She has no control over the way she looks. I have watched her on MSNBC with Rev. Al and she is well spoken on race issues, plus if you ask white folk, we are ALL the same…it's that one drop rule…why can't we extend each other the same courtesy. We come in all hues because in Africa there are many colors plus African women were so degraded during slavery…REMEMBER! Our men were bought, enslaved, and used for breeding. But African women were bought, stipped naked, used for breeding for African men and sex slaves for white men and then had to be the "mammy" for the white woman and her children…let's not get it twisted.

  5. Congrats; when given an opportunity, your future is bright. Who will be our next "Harriet T", from community to opportunity. Thanks Opera, I hope more women see your vision for the future.

  6. Congratulations Sunny!

  7. The author of this garbage is an asshole. That’s not a black face, it’s a mulato face. This is just another form of racism.

  8. Sunny stated on the view that she’s a Puerto Rican. Still, she’s a person of color.

  9. Personally, I don’t go “ga ga” ova Black people that “made it” in the mainstream media. This is the same mainstream media that throw Black people under the bus!!!! I know Sunny ain’t Black tho.
