NewsNation Expands Roster Of News Contributors

The Nexstar cable network also is adding a third hour to its NewsNation Live on March 6 at 10 a.m. ET.

NewsNation today announced that a portfolio of new on-air contributors will join the network’s news broadcasts, bringing expertise in the areas of medicine, law, the military, politics, national security, media and business.

The network is also expanding its programming offerings, adding a third hour to NewsNation Live. Hosted by anchor Marni Hughes, the third hour addition begins Monday, March 6, at 10 a.m. ET / 9 CT.

“I’m thrilled to add this group of widely respected contributors to our team of dedicated journalists,” said Michael Corn, NewsNation president of news. “As we grow our audience, these experts in their fields will offer unique insights and enhance the authenticity of stories we deliver to the NewsNation audience.”

Elections analyst Chris Stirewalt, who already serves as NewsNation’s political editor, adds another title to his resume as a political contributor. A senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a contributing editor for The Dispatch, Stirewalt testified before Congress at the Jan. 6 committee hearings about his role with Fox News’ election coverage, and recently published a best-selling book, Broken News: How the Media Rage Machine Divides America and How to Fight Back. Stirewalt will continue to appear alongside Senior Political Contributor George Will for election and debate night coverage.

The new slate of contributors, many of whom are familiar to the NewsNation audience, will provide the latest reporting and analysis on top stories across all NewsNation news programming.
