Audie Cornish Joins CNN+ After Leaving NPR

Audie Cornish, a journalist who left National Public Radio after 15 years, is joining CNN.

Cornish will host a weekly show for CNN’s upcoming CNN+ streaming service, as well as serve as a correspondent on live daily programming on both CNN’s linear channel and CNN+. Cornish will also host a CNN Audio program.

Cornish was most recently the co-host of NPR’s flagship news show All Things Considered. She will work out of Washington, D.C., and will begin next month.

Cornish is CNN’s latest high-profile recruit for its new streaming service, which will launch in the spring. She will be joined by former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, former NBC News anchor Kasie Hunt, and chef-turned-media personality Alison Roman. Anderson Cooper will present two programs during the service, while Eva Longoria will headline Searching for Mexico.

Cornish’s hiring also implies that CNN would continue to invest in its audio and podcasting business.
