Celebrity Chris Cuomo Heads New Primetime Show on NewsNation After Getting Fired from CNN

Chris Cuomo wants to get back into the game after a lengthy and well-publicized hiatus. Chris, the brother of former disgraced Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to “get after it” again so he can continue his famous phrase said on his former CNN show every night, ” Let’s Get After It.”

Cuomo has a point to make. His departure from CNN was anything but amicable. The anchor was embroiled in a sexual harassment investigation involving his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and in late 2021, New York State Attorney General Letitia James.

Talking with NewsNation host Dan Abrams on NewsNation he said,  “I want to find a way to help people. I am going to come to NewsNation, and I want to build something special here,” “Work with Dan, work with the team here , they’ve got great people who are really hungry to make a difference in ways that I think matter.” “I think we need insurgent media, I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets,” he went on to say. “I’m gonna do the job. I’m gonna go where the news is. And I’m gonna try very hard to be fair. And I want to do it here. I want to make a difference, and I really hope it makes a difference for you.”

“I thank NewsNation very much for the opportunity,”

 

Cuomo, who made that phrase the mission statement for his CNN program at 9 p.m., is bringing his bulldog demeanor and lean-in anchoring style to NewsNation, the still-nascent news outlet backed by large station owner Nexstar Media, which has made a series of acquisitions in recent months aimed at bolstering its media presence. In the fall, Cuomo will join the NewsNation primetime lineup.

Nexstar is betting big on NewsNation to break into the cable news business, which is dominated by Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and CNN. Thus far, the network’s ratings have been mediocre. — despite hiring several anchors familiar to fans of those rival channels, such as and Dan Abrams from ABC News and MSNBC, Leland Vittert from Fox,  and Ashleigh Banfield from CNN. its primetime schedule captures an estimate of just 50,000 people per night year to date.

Chris Cuomo’s show will be premiering in the fall, but a date has  yet to be announced. Will  Chris appear every night with the same black suit, white shirt and black tie he wore every night on his show for so many years? We hope not if he is looking for a fresh new start.
