CNN Fires Anchor Chris Cuomo, “Effective Immediately”

CNN said today that anchor Chris Cuomo has been “terminated” by the network, “effective immediately.”

Chris Cuomo has acknowledged that it was a mistake to take part in staff calls to advise his brother as he sought to respond to the cascading series of revelations in March. Now, he is paying the price for that error.

Michael Smerconish is scheduled to host the 9 PM ET slot next week under the title CNN Primetime.

Cuomo headlined the network’s top rated show in primetime, having moved from a morning slot in 2018. He first joined the network in 2013 after a long stint at ABC News.
