CNN has fired longtime news anchor Chris Cuomo.
CNN suspended Cuomo last week to investigate his conduct, after it was revealed that he was more involved with his brother, former new York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s defense against sexual misconduct claims, than he had told them.
CNN hired a law firm for that review and the lawyers recommended Chris Cuomo’s termination, said AP News.

“It goes without saying that these decisions are not easy, and there are a lot of complex factors involved,” Zucker wrote to staff adding that “while in the process of that review, additional information has come to light.”
Cuomo tweeted his reaction to the news: “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did,” he said.
