NEW YORK (AP) _ Former NBC “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory is joining CNN as a Washington-based political analyst.
CNN said it has also hired political consultant Angela Rye as an analyst. The Washington-based Rye is former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus.
CNN said Monday that Gregory will appear primarily on “New Day,” the network’s morning news show.
Gregory left NBC News after 20 years in 2014. The network’s management, concerned about fading ratings on a show that dominated Sunday-morning political television for years, replaced him with Chuck Todd.
Gregory is also the author of “How’s Your Faith,” which discusses his spiritual and religious background.
