Chris Cuomo, fired from CNN, is leaving his SiriusXM radio show

1 month ago 42

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Monday he will "no longer be doing" his SiriusXM radio show, just days after losing his high-profile cable news spot.

He's normally the host of "Let's Get After It with Chris Cuomo" at noon ET on SiriusXM, but former ABC News reporter Brian Ross was behind the microphone when the show aired on Monday.

About an hour after the two-program ended, Cuomo announced he was leaving, saying he needed "to take a stop back and focus on what comes next."

Cuomo's radio silence earlier on Monday took listeners by surprise as Ross came on the air in Cuomo's place.

Ross, at the top of the show, said he was substituting for Cuomo: "And good Monday afternoon to you, this is Brian Ross, from the Law and Crime Network, sitting in today for Chris Cuomo”

SiriusXM representatives did not return several phone and email messages seeking the company's comment on Monday.

Ross ended his two-hour segment by thanking various staffers and promoting another show — but did not give any indication on who would be behind the microphone on Tuesday.

CNN on Saturday terminated Cuomo after new details emerged about his efforts to help his brother, then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who was fighting sexual harassment allegations that eventually led to his resignation.
