The Cuomo family are not having a good time in their lives. Following the resignation of Andrew Cuomo to the New York state governor’s office, after a flood of abuse complaints against him, the slump passed to his brother, the news anchor Chris Cuomo.

CNN announced last week that the youngest Cuomo had been suspended to find out how involved he was in advising his disgraced brother. After suspension I arrive a report of sexual harassment against the newscaster. There the news channel decided to fire him directly.

Today the news is that Chris Cuomo will also leave the satellite radio show driving for the chain SiriusXM. Cuomo was hosting the radio show Let’s get after it (We go after that) since 2018, and a last broadcast that was already recorded will air this week despite the journalist’s resignation.

“While I am capable of enduring many things, I am also I have a family for whom the last week has been extraordinarily difficult“, Declared Cuomo who assured that he has left his radio program to” focus on what comes next. “

Although now there is a complaint of harassment against the youngest of the Cuomo, his fall from grace in the traditional news network (of which he was one of the main figures, hosting the news of the prime time) had to do with CNN ethical protocols. According to documentation provided by the New York prosecutor’s office, Chris Cuomo’s actions in helping his brother answer the allegations of sexual misconduct were more extensive than originally believed. And, as the company understood, that violated its code of ethics.

Chris Cuomo never denied helping his brother. But his explanation was simply that that’s what the family does.

Following the suspension, it was made public that a woman, whose identity is withheld, was also accusing the minor Cuomo of sexual harassment. The lawyer Debra Katz, on behalf of his client, reported the accusations to CNN last Wednesday.

Although neither the lawyer nor the CNN chain gave details of the complaint. It’s known that the alleged abuse occurred in 2013, prior to joining CNN, when he was working for the ABC network.

CNN acted promptly on my client’s complaint and fired Mr. Cuomo ”, was the only statement made in this regard by attorney Katz.

Through a spokesperson, Cuomo denied the allegations categorically.. “If the point of making these unproven and false accusations was to see CNN punish Mr. Cuomo, that might explain his unjustified dismissal”.

When speaking of unjustified dismissal, Cuomo’s spokesman leaves the door open for a possible lawsuit by the presenter against the chain. Cuomo, as other disgraced television figures have done, is expected to start putting together his own content through social media, without the need for a television channel to run his show.
