Chris Cuomo on Monday announced he is quitting his SiriusXM radio show after being fired from CNN.
CNN announced late Saturday afternoon the cable network has fired host Chris Cuomo, “effective immediately” following an investigation into Cuomo using his journalism contacts to help defend his brother former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) when he was facing numerous allegations of sexual assault by female staffers.
On Sunday, Debra Katz, the high-powered attorney representing Chris Cuomo’s (anonymous) accuser, released a statement on the fired CNN anchor.
Recall, Debra Katz represented Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford in 2018.
Less than 24 hours later, Cuomo said he’s leaving his SiriusXM radio gig and said he’s “looking forward to being back in touch” with his listeners in the future.

Cuomo is also preparing to sue CNN for $18 million over what’s left on his contract according to the New York Post.
