CNN Fires Chris Cuomo for Helping Brother, Ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Respond to Sexual Misconduct Claims

HeadlineDec 06, 2021

CNN fired star anchor Chris Cuomo Saturday, just four days after the cable network suspended him amid revelations he helped his brother, disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, respond to accusations of sexual misconduct. One day after his suspension last week, a lawyer told CNN about another allegation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo. The accusation was made by a former colleague, though it’s not clear if that played a role in his firing. In September, Chris Cuomo’s former boss at ABC News, Shelley Ross, revealed he once touched her inappropriately at a public gathering.
