An investigation revealed the former anchor played a bigger role in helping his brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, deal with sexual misconduct allegations.
"I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there," Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
The network was aware of the allegation just days before the anchor was fired for helping his then-governor brother defend himself against misconduct claims.
Cuomo has been terminated "effective immediately" for his involvement in helping his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, respond to sexual misconduct allegations, CNN said.
Brian Stelter, the cable network's media reporter, said it's possible Cuomo could be back on the air next month.
The star anchor said he understands why he had to leave the network and that he never meant to "compromise" his colleagues.
The Fox News host defended the CNN newsman for helping brother Andrew Cuomo fight sexual misconduct accusations.
"If some news channel intern did what Chris Cuomo did they'd have been fired one second after these docs were published," one journalist noted.
"The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions," the network said.
“Please let me help with prep,” the CNN host texted one of Andrew Cuomo's former aides as allegations of sexual harassment came to light.
“I did not approve of that,” Mark Richards told CNN's Chris Cuomo about the presence of the Fox News personality's "documentary" makers.
Shelley Ross said the CNN anchor apologized after touching her inappropriately at a 2005 party, and now hopes he'll "journalistically repent" for his behavior.
The CNN host has been under fire for crossing ethical lines with his brother, the disgraced New York governor who resigned amid sexual harassment allegations.
The CNN host said his "birthday vacation" has been planned for a long time.
The CNN anchor's show only mentioned the allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in an onscreen news ticker.
This CNN interview with a California restaurateur may be the weirdest thing on TV this week.
And the ex-president’s niece is “fairly sure” her cousins will flip on their father.
"I cannot imagine a world in which anybody in journalism thinks that that was appropriate," the CNN host said of the incident.
“If my dad had been accused of sexual assault, I would be talking about it on 'The View' because I’m not a snowflake."
The anchor said he was sorry for putting his CNN colleagues in a difficult position.
