Chris Cuomo Career

Cuomo’s early journalism career includes appearances on CNBC, MSNBC, and CNN discussing social and political problems. He worked for Fox News and Fox Broadcast Network’s Fox Files as a correspondent and political policy expert, covering a wide range of topics centered on divisive social issues.

His year-long investigation of heroin addiction on ABC’s 20/20 as co-anchor highlighted the extent to which it was hurting suburban families. His other projects have included reporting on the disaster in Haiti, child custody, bullying, and homeless teenagers. His undercover investigation of for-profit school recruiters resulted in policy improvements, including an industry-wide clean-up. Cuomo received a tip from a BMW owner, which resulted in a recall of nearly 150,000 affected vehicles. He was the newscaster for Good Morning America from September 2006 till December 2009. He was the lead reporter on breaking news stories in the United States and around the world, with dozens of assignments in more than ten different nations. He was implanted in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq many times to chronicle the fight on terrorism (where his convoy was hit by an IED). He reported the Virginia Tech tragedy, the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, and the Amish gun deaths in Pennsylvania in the United States. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Sago Mine disaster, and the Minneapolis bridge collapse in August 2007 were all shown live on his show. He hosted coverage in the morning and evening.
He maintained a website called “Cuomo on the Case” and two weekly internet shows called The Real Deal and Focus on Faith during his time at ABC. On ABC News Now, the network’s 24-hour digital stream, he also appeared with Father Edward Beck.

Cuomo joined CNN in February 2013 as a co-host of its morning show. He had his CNN start as a field reporter on Piers Morgan Tonight on February 8, 2013, reporting the February 2013 nor’easter. Cuomo moved to prime time to host Cuomo Prime Time in March 2018, while co-anchoring CNN’s morning show New Day.

A new documentary series, Inside with Chris Cuomo was presented by the journalist that aired on sister network HLN in October 2017, focuses on “issues affecting real people, in real towns and cities around America.” He started hosting the two-hour weekday radio show “Let’s Get After It” on Sirius XM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel in September 2018.

CNN’s coverage of Andrew Cuomo and his dismissal

Chris Cuomo interviewed his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, on his CNN show while recovering from COVID-19 in early 2020. Following news of sexual harassment claims against Andrew, Cuomo stated on his show in March 2021 that he would be unable to discuss the allegations on the show due to his clear conflict of interest.

Cuomo was said to have participated in strategic meetings with his brother in May 2021 to counsel him on how to respond to the charges. Cuomo’s participation in the talks was deemed “inappropriate” by CNN, although the network did not take any disciplinary action against him. Cuomo’s behavior, as well as the violation of journalism ethics and standards, has “vexed” a number of CNN employees. Cuomo later apologized, saying that advising his brother was a “mistake” that he would “never do again.” Cuomo mentioned his brother’s upcoming resignation in August, stating that he was not Andrew’s adviser and that he had urged his brother to quit as governor. Cuomo utilized his media sources to gather information about his brother’s known accusers and inquire about the possibility of additional accusers who had not yet come forward publicly, according to documents published by the New York attorney general’s office on 29 November 2021. Cuomo allegedly assisted Andrew in drafting remarks, according to the records, and was in contact with a top adviser to Andrew about upcoming revelations about Andrew’s alleged wrongdoing. Cuomo was suspended indefinitely from CNN the next day. Cuomo described his suspension as “embarrassing,” but said that he understood “why certain people feel the way they do about what he did.”

CNN fired Cuomo on December 4 after an internal assessment by a law firm found him guilty of “involvement with his brother’s defense.” CNN stated it would examine Cuomo’s “involvement with his brother’s defense.”

Allegations of sexual misbehavior

Cuomo’s former supervisor Shelley Ross accused him of sexual assault in a New York Times op-ed in September 2021. She didn’t demand that he be fired from CNN, but she did say that she would “want to see him journalistically repent.” Cuomo acknowledged the interaction, which he described as “not sexual in nature.” He stated that he apologized then of which he meant it. Debra Katz, the attorney for another former Cuomo colleague, told CNN in December 2021 that her client had alleged Cuomo of sexual misconduct before to his departure.
