Sunny Hostin Attorney and multi-platform journalist CNN
Attorney and multi-platform journalist, Sunny Hostin is CNN's legal analyst and a contributor for In Session (formerly Court TV) on TruTV. She is also an anchor on ABC News' World News Now and America This Morning. Sunny joined CNN in September 2007 as the legal analyst for CNN's American Morning, where she became known for her in-depth analysis of headline grabbing trials and legal issues. Before joining CNN, Sunny could be seen on the Fox News Channel, where she was seen weekly on The O'Reilly Factor's "Is It Legal? segment, sparring with Megan Kelly and Bill O'Reilly on various provocative issues and high-profile cases. Sunny has covered many of the major legal and political stories of today, including the 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. As a Department of Justice alum, Sunny's deep knowledge of the Justice Department and its inner workings made her an invaluable part of the CNN morning team during and after the historic election of Barack Obama. She has published numerous popular and scholarly articles in many outlets on topics including securities fraud, ponzi schemes, sex crimes, crimes against women, foreclosures, and everyday financial legal issues. Sunny has been profiled, featured and quoted in many publications such as Forbes Woman, Uptown Magazine, Essence, The New York Post,, Latina, and Ebony. Sunny is a highly sought after public speaker known for her lively and engaging speaking style at corporate and academic events. As a federal prosecutor, Sunny's prosecution of child sexual predators and work with child sex abuse victims led to her being awarded with a Special Achievement Award by then Attorney General Janet Reno. Sunny was also a Managing Director of Business Intelligence and Investigations at Kroll, the world's leading risk-consulting company.

Sunny Hostin to Host MCCA Gala
Sunny Hostin, J.D. '94, was named the Alvin McKenna Alumnus of the Year Award
Notre Dame, IN, May 18, 2012 -- Sunny Hostin, J.D. '94, was named the Alvin McKenna Alumnus of the Year Award and asked to give the keynote address at the 2012 Black Law Students Association awards banquet at NDLS this year.
Hostin, who worked as a federal prosecutor before joining CNN as a legal analyst and ABC as an anchor on ABC News' World News Now and America This Morning, credited NDLS with preparing her for a successful career as a Notre Dame lawyer. She said NDLS graduates' preparation is a testament to the quality of the professors who ensure graduates have a well-rounded world view that includes considering the morality as well as the legality of their actions.
(Sure enough, it turned out Hostin actually did very well on the exam.)
