In mid-April, NewsNation announced the addition of Adrienne Bankert (pictured at top), who had previously served as a national correspondent for ABC News since 2015, to its lineup of on-air journalists. The plan is for Bankert to complement NewsNation‘s prime-time cast as she delivers various special reports that will broadcast on existing NewsNation programming, such as NewsNation Prime with Marni Hughes, Rob Nelson and Albert Ramon and The Donlon Report. This comes at a time when the network is looking to expand its viewership and increasingly appeal to an audience potentially looking for alternatives to the sensationalism and partisan-alignment that tends to characterize cable news shows.As has also been covered recently at MediaVillage, other recent additions to NewsNation’s crew have included Ashleigh Banfield, who began hosting the 10 p.m. program Banfieldin March of this year, and Joe Donlon, who hosts the 7 p.m. show The Donlon Report.
