Former NPR host Audie Cornish is moving to CNN, the cable network said Monday. 


Cornish will be an anchor and correspondent for CNN+, a forthcoming streaming subscription service. She will host a weekly show for CNN+ and a new podcast for CNN Audio. She begins in February. 

“I am very excited to join CNN and the CNN+ team. There are fresh stories to be told and new ways to tell them,” said Cornish in a press release. “CNN has a dynamic system of reporters and storytelling channels. I am thrilled to be a part of it.”

Friday was Cornish’s last day hosting All Things Considered. She had hosted the program since 2012 and joined NPR in 2005. 

“Her voice has been such an important part of the lives of so many people, and the perspective, integrity and grace that have been hallmarks of her career will make her such an important addition to our teams,” said Andrew Morse, EVP and chief digital officer of CNN Worldwide and head of CNN+, in the release.

NPR has lost two other hosts to national commercial media outlets in recent months, with Lulu Garcia-Navarro joining the New York Times and Noel King moving to Vox.
