Chris Cuomo is Trying to Recover His Career at NewsNation

Reading Time: 2 minutes

After leaving CNN in December in the middle of a scandal, Cuomo has returned to a prime time anchor spot on the upstart NewsNation. He has expressed gratitude to the network for the opportunity. He plans to cover stories about ranked choice voting, purple states, and multi-party systems. This news comes just months after he was suspended from CNN following sexual harassment accusations against his brother, the former governor of New York, Andrew.  What was at issue for Cuomo was the inappropriate support he gave to his brother, leveraging his media relationships to help his brother.

Cuomo has a long history in television news, including hosting “Cuomo Prime Time” at CNN and co-anchoring “New Day” at ABC. He also has extensive ties to NewsNation, as the network is supervised by Michael Corn, a former senior producer at ABC News. And he will be joining a team that has garnered largely positive reviews in its efforts for more objective news coverage.

While it’s unclear when Cuomo will start hosting his own show, he will officially join the network’s evening lineup. He will host a show on NewsNation that will premiere later this year, but it’s unclear when it will air. Cuomo previously said that he was not interested in indicting the media, but wanted to ensure more accountability for its coverage.

Despite the controversy surrounding Cuomo’s firing by CNN last year, his new position is largely seen as a great opportunity for a media veteran recovering from a scandal and for a new network trying to get traction . After working for CNN for over 10 years, he helped develop the morning show “New Day,” and hosted a popular radio show on SiriusXM that ended due to the scandal around supporting his brother when facing sexual harrassment accusations.

Chris Cuomo had his own accusers, as far as far as sexually inappropriate behavior, which he has fiercely denied. Only time will tell if those issues will follow him to NewsNation and impact his comeback efforts.
