WATCH: Chris Cuomo Lands New Gig with Fledgling Network

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo has landed a new gig in a much lower profile news role. According to the Washington Times, NewsNation “is averaging just 50,000 viewers a night despite having already hired such well-known anchors as Leland Vittert from Fox, Ashleigh Banfield from CNN and Mr. Abrams from ABC News and MSNBC.”

“I’m going to come to NewsNation and I want to build something special here,” Cuomo  told host Dan Abrams. “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’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,” Cuomo added.

“I think we need insurgent media,” Cuomo also said. “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, and I’m really hoping that it makes a difference for you. And I thank NewsNation very much for the opportunity.”
