Former CNN host Chris Cuomo — younger brother of disgraced politician Andrew Cuomo — announced earlier this week he would be starring in a new program for NewsNation.
The show will air in primetime and is reportedly set to open this Fall, however, other major details have yet to be released to the public.
“I’m going to come to NewsNation and I want to build something special here,” Cuomo told the outlet, in an interview about him being brought on.
“Work with Dan [Abrams], work with the team here. They’ve got great people who are really hungry to make a difference in ways that I think matter.”
This announcement comes after Cuomo was fired from CNN less than a year ago for a variety of reasons, but one included him using his influence as a cable news host to help his brother Andrew, deal with scandalous political fallout which saw him resign and leave the New York Governor’s mansion.
Cuomo even acknowledged he was, in fact, helping his brother while working for CNN, according to News Nation. That didn’t stop him, however, from suing his old network for $125 million — an action he says he took to, “protect his family legacy.”
NewsNation claims to be a source of unbiased media. Yet by hiring Cuomo, they’ve taken a hard left turn, which doesn’t seem to be very impartial.
“Eight months after he was fired from CNN, Chris Cuomo announced he will be joining NewsNation to host a prime-time show expected to start later this year,” NewsNation proudly declared of its new disgraced anchor.
During his interview with Abrams, Cuomo explained, “I have decided that I can’t go back to what people see as the ‘big game’ I don’t think I can make a difference there. I think we need insurgent media I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets.”
“I’m going to do the job, I’m going to go where the news is, and I’m going to try very hard to be fair, and I want to do it here, I want to make a difference,” he continued. “And I’m really hoping that it makes a difference for you. And I thank News Nation very much for the opportunity.”
