ABC News veteran hired to lead NewsNation
Nexstar Media Group has tapped a long-time ABC News executive to run NewsNation, a Chicago-based cable news network.
Michael Corn is a 19-year veteran of ABC News and served as senior executive producer of “Good Morning America.”
Corn was named President of News at NewsNation on Tuesday, according to a Nexstar press release.
He replaces Jennifer Lyons, who abruptly resigned in March, just seven months after NewsNation’s launch.
“In this newly created position, Corn will be responsible for the long-term strategy and day-to-day operations of NewsNation’s current news programming and any future content expansion,” the press release reads.
Corn has spent the last seven years with “GMA.” He previously served as executive director of “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “World News Weekend” with David Muir.
