Dr. Chris Magovern named an ABC News Medical Contributor

Dr. Chris Magovern has been named “Medical Contributor” for ABC News. Dr. Magovern has appeared on air and on the Internet discussing medical topics that range from the safety of airport screening and presidential medical care to Bill Clinton’s angioplasty and Barbara Walter’s valve surgery.



Dr. Magovern has taped more than 20 segments for ABC. The interviews have appeared on Good Morning America Health, a cable show which airs nationally on ABC’s 24-hour news channel ABC News Now, which is available locally on Verizon Fios. These segments have been taped in ABC’s Times Square studio in New York City, and from the cardiac operating rooms at Morristown Memorial.

“Contributing to ABC’s medical news team gives me the opportunity to help viewers receive the most accurate medical information in a way that’s easy to understand,” Magovern said. “I have found that my busy clinical practice and numerous contacts in the medical community enable me to comfortably comment on a wide range of medical topics.”
