Rumor: ABC's Chris Cuomo Is Heading To CNN

Jan 29 2013, 6:30am CST | by

Would be third ABC news man to jump ship in a year

After a fairly easy ride as an anchor on ABC's 20/20 for the last few years, Chris Cuomo is apparently ready to get back into the thick of it as a regular morning news personality on CNN. It would mean that he is going from a network job where he mainly presents taped news segments once a week to a position where he will be live in front of the cameras on a daily basis.

Chris Cuomo, the son of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, came to fame as the news anchor for Good Morning America from 2006 to 2009. He left that spot to take the primetime 20/20 role, where he has been doing an adequate job.

It just doesn't seem like his cup of tea, though. Cuomo isn't that great as a voice-over announcer, moderator, or even sit-down interviewer. He does his best as a talking head news kind of guy, and it appears that it where he's heading in his jump over to CNN.

It's being reported that Cuomo will anchor a new show alongside Erin Burnett, who has struggled to maintain a captive audience with her own self-guided afternoon news program.

Jumping from a network gig to a basic cable job seems a bit counter-intuitive. There are many people who work at CNN with the goal of making their way to one of the big broadcast players.

But with ABC especially, the reverse has been the case over the last year. Correspondents John Berman and Jake Tapper both hopped over to CNN last year, doing effectively the same job. Sharyn Alfonsi also left ABC's news team, and now Cuomo might be doing the same thing.

It could be related to the extreme unease that exists in the news departments of the major networks right now. With The Today Show turmoil and a real crisis of identity for almost all of the network news shows, CNN is at least a place that has strong stability.
