Chris Cuomo to Host Prime-Time Show for NewsNation

From a story on by Sara Fischer headlined “Chris Cuomo to host a prime-time show for NewsNation”:

Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is joining NewsNation, a 24/7 cable news network owned by Nexstar Media Group.

Why it matters: Cuomo has been off air since he was indefinitely suspended last November following revelations about his involvement in the management of his brother’s sexual harassment scandal. He was later fired by the network.

The big picture: It’s a huge get for the network, which has struggled to post big ratings since re-launching with the NewsNation branding under the Nexstar umbrella in 2021.
