NewsNation dismisses report that Chris Cuomo will host his $700,000 show on October 3 – Daily Mail | Gmx Pharm

Disgraced CNN anchor Chris Cuomo will join NewsNation for a show starting October 3 at 8 p.m., DailyMail.com can reveal.

The TV host will be paid a multimillion-dollar salary for his role at the fledgling media company, which is being taped from Manhattan.

Even with his new appearance, the 51-year-old will continue to receive an extensive allowance for cloakroom and travel expenses.

Sources told DailyMail.com that conservative commentator Bill O’Reilly will appear as a guest on his show but will not be a full-time staffer.

Meanwhile, insiders have claimed ex-Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly is preparing for a role at the network, saying there have never been talks of her joining.

The move marks Cuomo’s first attempt at a career revival since he was booted from CNN last year.

He had been trying to help his brother – former New York Gov. Andrew – when dozens of women came forward to accuse him of molestation.

A NewsNation spokesman told DailyMail.com Cuomo will be broadcasting his new program from the cable news agency’s Manhattan studio.

They said, “In addition to ‘Dan Abrams Live,’ Chris Cuomo will have a studio at PIX along with other New York-based NewsNation shows.”

Cuomo has been forced to cobble together money from his podcast, The Chris Cuomo Project, as a “free agent” since he was dumped from CNN.

In a recent Instagram post, Cuomo gave a tour of his home setup, panning across a soundboard and computer monitor, and strolling around the apartment.

“We have everything we need here that I had in the studio – it’s just at my house because I like the setting,” he says in the video.

In the background, tripods, cables, and sound-absorbing black curtains surround his coffee table and occasional chair.

“This is the living room that we converted into a cozy place to sit,” he says.

“It will happen here unless my wife is here or someone wants to live here. We will only move the grandstands.’

On the studio tour, Cuomo, dressed in a black T-shirt with “purist” written in capital letters on the back, goes into the dining area flooded with studio light and then into the kitchen.

“Now we have a kitchen because I hang out with a lot of guests and shoot shit before and after the interview,” he says.

‘That’s it. This is us in New York City. This is the free agent’s home now and I love it because the show doesn’t get cozier than home.”

Cuomo’s podcast currently ranks fourth among Apple podcasts, according to website Chartable.

He recently interviewed West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, but don’t expect a repeat of his garrulous interviews with his brother Andrew.

“Absolutely not,” a source told Page Six. Cuomo suffered a precipitous fall and went into self-produced podcasts after attracting 1.137 million viewers at his peak on CNN.

A source told the New York Post that late New York Governor Mario Cuomo’s son was considered “damaged merchandise.”

“I don’t think he has much influence,” the insider told the newspaper.

NewsNation viewership is hovering around 50,000 — with just 8,000 in the coveted 25-54 age bracket, according to Indiwire.

It claims not to distort either left or right.

Cuomo was booted from CNN over ethical issues after it was revealed he had Andrew.

Cuomo was accused of using his media contacts to find out who the next accuser was and how to discredit him.

He was also accused of sexually harassing former ABC coworker Shelley Ross while they worked together on that network.

Ross toasted NewsNation for bringing Cuomo back. “Cuomo IS the status quo, same old, same old, arrogant, misogynist, proud member of the old boys club,” she said.

“Nobody cares about NewsNation’s ratings. I’m looking for something new, fresh and honest.

“Just maybe some of us don’t see Cuomo as that answer…those who were disappointed by his lack of genuine remorse.

“As he continues to analyze his words, hide behind a brother’s love, deny wrongdoing, to many of us he remains unmusical and false.

“I’m for second chances. But I won’t believe he’s a disruptor until he disrupts something and finds a bigger cause than himself.’

CNN fired him from his lucrative gig, where his ratings had plummeted following his brother’s precipitous fall.

Cuomo had been hoping for an $18 million gold parachute when he was dropped from his perch perched high, but instead he was shown the door with half of it.

Former CNN boss Jeff Zucker and the network’s marketing executive Allison Gollust, whose extramarital affair was exposed during the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s behavior, both lost their jobs in the episodes.

The journalist sued the network alleging that Cuomo unfairly besmirched his journalistic integrity, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and causing him over $125 million in damages , which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the agreement, but future salary losses as a result of CNN’s efforts to tarnish its reputation in violation of the agreement.’

His new, lower-paying position at NewsNation seems to support that claim.

The broadcasting startup seems to have become a haven for journalists who have fallen out of favor.

Michael Corn, who quit his job as executive producer of Good Morning America amid allegations of sexually assaulting female subordinates, has found a home with NewsNation as the company’s president.

Corn denied the allegations, and in June a New York State Superior Court judge dismissed a lawsuit by one of his accusers who alleged that he forcibly touched and kissed her as she was covering the 2015 Academy Awards in Los Angeles were traveling.
