CNN fired American television journalist Chris Cuomo on Saturday, December 4, after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced. He had been suspended earlier that week for his role in his brother Andrew Cuomo’s legal defense – Andrew Cuomo resigned as governor of New York amid his own sexual misconduct allegations.
“This is not how I envisioned my time at CNN ending, but I’ve already explained why and how I assisted my brother.” So, as disappointing as this is, I am extremely proud of the Cuomo Prime Time team and the work we did as CNN’s number one show in a highly competitive time slot. Cuomo said in a statement to CNN, “I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”
