In late 2021, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was under investigation after sexual assault allegations against the politician came to light, according to The Washington Post. Those allegations also included Andrew’s brother, Chris Cuomo, who was a news anchor for CNN at the time. It was soon revealed that Chris would be suspended indefinitely from CNN as the investigation continued after documents proved he was “closely involved” in helping his brother’s defense.
“As Chris [Cuomo] He has admitted to us that he gave advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we have publicly acknowledged that,” a CNN spokesman said in December 2021, first and work second. However, these documents indicate greater involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew.”
A few days after Chris’ suspension, CNN fired the anchor, saying, “During this review, additional information came to light,” which ultimately resulted in Chris’ contract being terminated. After demanding $125 million from CNN after he was fired, he picked himself up again — and he hasn’t let that setback spoil his love of reporting.
Chris Cuomo is reconnecting with his love of reporting
According to the Daily Beast, Chris Cuomo applied to the East Hampton Fire Department, but his application was withdrawn. The former moderator wanted to volunteer, but ultimately didn’t get the job due to the time commitment. Cuomo also shared a post on Instagram of him in Ukraine, showing he’s still interested in covering. Now he’s working on a new podcast.
“His podcast is being recorded and streamed,” a source told Page Six on July 20. “Chris is loaded, so he’s going to get it right. He’ll find guests who are also ‘free agents’ and have carved their own way to express his concept.”
The source added that Cuomo is “going rogue” with his new project as he opposes his former employer. The former CNN news anchor teased the podcast, titled “The Chris Cuomo Project,” on Instagram. He also encouraged his followers to support him, referring to himself as a “free agent”. The project should be published soon.
