Grzech will join the network as its managing editor and vice president of news, reporting to Michael Corn, the former “Good Morning America” chief who is president of the operation. She will start her new role on July 19 and move to Chicago from her current roost in Washington, D.C.
“She has pioneered innovative news gathering and production techniques and forged important partnerships with new media platforms and organizations,” Corn said in a statement. “Most important, Cherie understands that viewers are looking for fact-based journalism they can trust. She will be a great addition to the NewsNation team as we expand our programming.” Corn joined NewsNation last month.
