Ana Cabrera to join MSNBC
Award-winning journalist Ana Cabrera will join MSNBC as the anchor of Ana Cabrera Reports,
premiering Monday, April 10 at 10 a.m. ET.
On MSNBC’s Ana Cabrera Reports, Cabrera will break down the latest news and bring expert in-the-field reporting on the day’s most important stories to viewers, paired with interviews and discussions with newsmakers, journalists, thought leaders, and more.
An award-winning journalist and anchor with more than two decades of experience, Cabrera has reported from across the globe on major domestic and international news stories including the Ferguson, Mo. protests, the Canadian parliament shooting, and North Korea prisoner Kenneth Bae’s return to the U.S.
Prior to joining MSNBC, Cabrera served as an anchor and national correspondent at CNN. She hosted two presidential town halls and was first to interview former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley following an historic vote on North Korea sanctions.
She has been recognized with numerous accolades, including a regional Emmy for her in-the-field anchoring of Colorado’s High Park Fire in 2012 and the “Outstanding Television Anchor” impact award by the National Hispanic Media Coalition “for her continued advocacy for the Latino community and for her presence as the first Latina to have her own show on a major cable network.”
The launch of Ana Cabrera Reports comes as MSNBC continues to invest in new programming and across streaming, audio, newsletters; and builds on the six-year winning streak of MSNBC over CNN in total day and prime time, according to Nielsen. Cabrera will join the MSNBC Reports lineup of breaking news anchors including José Díaz-Balart, Andrea Mitchell, Chris Jansing, Katy Tur, Alex Witt and Yasmin Vossoughian.
For the first quarter of 2023, MSNBC dominated CNN in total viewers, posting its ninth straight quarterly viewership win and its largest advantage over CNN in nearly four years, according to Nielsen ratings. MSNBC was also the only major cable news network to grow its weekday audience year over year in quarter one. MSNBC had its third straight quarter of year-over-year weekday viewership growth, while FOX News and CNN had double-digit declines. Most recently, MSNBC topped CNN in total viewers for the first time for a State of the Union address since 2019 – averaging 3.6 million viewers vs. CNN’s 2.4 million viewers (9-11 p.m.), marking its largest advantage over CNN in total viewers ever for a State of the Union address. In 2022, MSNBC beat CNN on a major election night for the first time ever during November’s Midterm Election.
