Changes at CNN
The network fired primetime anchor Chris Cuomo early this month. As NPR and other media reported, it turns out he played a larger role than he had previously admitted in helping his older brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, counter claims of sexual wrongdoing.
Chris Cuomo now also faces an allegation of sexual misconduct.
And Chris Wallace announced he is leaving Fox News to join CNN, where he will anchor a weekly interview show on its new subscription streaming service, CNN+.
NPR reported Wallace’s rather abrupt departure from Fox follows a series of clashes over the network's direction.
Shop Talk is a weekly panel discussion about journalism issues. This week’s program featured Will Buss, who teaches in the Department of Broadcasting and Journalism at Western Illinois University and advises the student editors at the Western Courier, the students at student radio station The Dog, and the WIU chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists; Rajvee Subramanian, who teaches in the Department of Broadcasting and Journalism at Western Illinois University; and TSPR News Director Rich Egger.
