On Thursday, her documentary, “Almighty Debt,” aired, which is the third installment of the “Black in America” series. Then on Friday, she had knee surgery. While recovering from surgery, O’Brien is also preparing for upcoming midterm election coverage.

And the busy anchor has a book tour to plan for “The Next Big Story.”
