Chris Cuomo is returning to TV screens.
The former CNN anchor will collaborate with NewsNation to “find a way to help people.”
When talking with NewsNation host Dan Abrams, he said he would join the NewsNation family. “I want to find a way to help people. I am going to come to NewsNation, and I want to build something special here,” Cuomo said.
“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,” he added.
In December, Cuomo was fired from CNN after he was helping his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo navigate his sexual harassment accusations. His contributions poisoned his reputation, leading up the network to let him go.
However, Cuomo claims the network knew how much he was helping his brother and is suing CNN for $125 million, citing he was wrongfully terminated.
Cuomo says he wants to be a part of a different network and recognizes NewsNation as the one.
“I think we need insurgent media, I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets,” he continued. “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.”
He then thanked NewsNation for the opportunity.
The new show will premiere in the fall, but the name hasn’t been announced yet.
