CNN is beefing up its lineup of aviation experts signing former morning anchor Miles O’Brien as an analyst, a CNN spokesperson confirms to TVNewser. O’Brien, who is a licensed pilot, spent 16 years at CNN, lastly as chief technology and environment correspondent, also covering the space program.
O’Brien has become the story in recent weeks following a freak accident that resulted in the amputation of his left arm.
“To me there’s two choices: you can either look at it as yet another challenge in life, something you need to overcome, or you end up in a very dark place. I didn’t like the dark place when I went down that road briefly. So I’m going to stay on this road.”
