Soledad O’Brien is searching for the truth about John F. Kennedy’s murder.
The 57-year-old half-Afro-Cuban American broadcast journalist and executive producer is teaming up with Rob Reiner to co-host Who Killed JFK? for iHeartPodcasts.
It will feature interviews with authors, witnesses and forensic experts as they look to connect the dots of JFK’s assassination 60 years later.
These include CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence.
The duo will also discuss their own theories and ask why it still matters today.
The series will premiere on November 8 ahead of the 60th anniversary of President Kennedy’s death on November 22.
“Sixty years ago, President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in broad daylight on the streets of Dallas. To this day, it remains the greatest murder mystery in U.S. history,” said Reiner. “The American people deserve to know the truth of what happened on that fateful day. Who Killed J.F.K.? will take the listener on an evidenced based journey to reveal that truth.”
“Throughout the series, Rob and I revisit the 1960s, through pivotal moments like the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, and the Civil Rights Movement to shine a light on where the great American divide started and through the lens of Kennedy’s assassination, we can understand how we’ve reached the pinnacle of political divisiveness in America today,” added O’Brien.
“We are grateful to be partnering with Rob and Soledad on the release of this series which aims to bring to light new information surrounding a historical mystery that has been dissected for decades,” said Will Pearson, President, iHeartPodcasts. “Their passion and talent for storytelling drove their dedicated efforts to uncover the truth behind one of the best kept secrets of the last century, and we are looking forward to sharing this important story with a new generation.”
