CNN anchor Chris Cuomo fired by network

CNN announced on Saturday that anchor Chris Cuomo has been “terminated” following an investigation into exactly how Cuomo aided his brother, former New York governor Andrew Cuomo, when the then-governor was accused of sexual harassment.

“We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately,” the statement said.


The network added that despite the termination, it will continue to review the matter after additional information became available.

Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.
