CNN is abuzz with changes this morning.

Award-winning anchor and investigative reporter Chris Cuomo is joining the network. He will have “a major role in a new CNN morning show” and across the network, says a release, anchoring and reporting on major events.

The news was announced today by Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide.

“Chris is an accomplished anchor who is already an established name in morning television, as well as a widely respected investigative journalist,” said Zucker. “What I love about Chris is that he is passionate about every story he tells, never forgets about the viewer, and represents the type of journalism that makes CNN great.”

From Cuomo: “This is a fantastic opportunity to do what I value the most and hopefully to do the work that I do best. While it’s very difficult to leave ABC News, a place filled with people I have loved working with for many years, I am excited about my future with CNN.”
