Report: CNN's Zucker Looking to Poach Cuomo From ABC

By    |   Friday, 28 Dec 2012 07:55 PM

Jeff Zucker takes over at CNN next month — and the word on the street is that he is yet eyeing another top ABC News talent, this one “20/20” co-anchor Chris Cuomo.

Last week, Zucker poached senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper for a show that could take the Wolf Blitzer time slot.

Now, Zucker is looking to woo Cuomo, who also is the network’s law-and-justice correspondent and brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the New York Post's Page Six reports.

“Jeff’s still looking for an anchor he can basically make the centerpiece of the network,” a source told the Post.

Zucker, the former head of NBC, also was considering former “Today” host Ann Curry for a position, but NBC officials insist that she’s under contract, the Post reports.

He also may well increase CNN’s Hollywood coverage by possibly moving Erin Burnett to mornings to battle “Today” and “Good Morning America.”

“Jeff should be careful how many people he tells will be the face of the network,” one other source told the Post.

Both CNN and ABC declined to comment, the Post reports.
