The 51-year-old television figure was sacked by CNN in December 2021 after revelations of his connection with his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s s*xual harassment charges surfaced. Cuomo purportedly served as Andrew’s informal advisor while still working for CNN and SiriusXM, where he broadcast a two-hour daily radio program.
On July 26, he announced his new employment during an interview on Dan Abrams Live. The hour-long interview, Cuomo’s first since his dismissal, covered a wide range of personal themes. Cuomo highlighted his impending part and program during the interview, according to The Hollywood Reporter, saying:
“I want to find a method to assist people, therefore I’m coming to new station to construct something great.” I’ve determined that I can’t return to what people call “the big game.” “I believe we need insurgent media, sources that aren’t fringe and simply seeking to fill their pockets.”
Cuomo also disputed charges of sexual assault leveled against him after his departure from CNN in the interview.
NewsNation was founded in 1978.
Perry A. Sook, who is also the CEO of Nextar, launched NewsNation, which was formerly known as WGN America. The station, which began as a local news server in Chicago, currently owns over 200 additional channels and stations throughout the United States. Michael Corn, the former executive producer of ABC’s Good Morning America, is now in charge of NewsNation. Chris Seper (vice president and general manager of NewsNation Digital), Cherie Grzech (managing editor and vice president of news), John Ferracane (vice president of news and content), and Sunny Singh are the other top executives (news director of NewsNation Digital).
Chris Cuomo recently told Dan Abrams that CNN network president Jeff Zucker was aware of his involvement with his brother and the support he was offering. Furthermore, in March 2022, it was announced that Cuomo’s attorneys had requested a $125 million arbitration against CNN since numerous key executives were aware of his position.
Chris Cuomo said that “no secrets existed” and that he “never lied” about assisting his brother.
“I adore my little brother.” My family’s rule is simple: Family. Trouble. Go. Others have the luxury of passing judgment on charges and circumstances. For me, it was about aiding my brother in a difficult manner while without compromising what was important. That’s what led me.”
However, in his newest podcast, The Chris Cuomo Project, the television host said that despite being dismissed from CNN, he would “never be a hater.” Cuomo worked for CNN for over ten years. He presented “Cuomo Prime Period,” CNN’s most-watched program for a time, and helped develop “New Day,” a morning show.
