Anchors are not related despite sharing last name
Are CNN's Miles O'Brien and Soledad O'Brien related?

No, the fact that they share the same last name and work for CNN is purely coincidental. Soledad began anchoring American Morning in 2003, and Miles, who came aboard the program after a stint anchoring CNN's weekday newcast Live From, joined the morning show last summer.
