Chris Cuomo Leaves His SiriusXM Radio Show After Fired From CNN

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo announced on Monday that he will no longer be doing his SiriusXM radio show just days after he was fired from CNN. 

Cuomo is the host of “Let’s Get After It with Chris Cuomo” at noon ET on SiriusXM, however, former ABC News reporter Brian Ross was behind the microphone when the show aired on Monday. 

After the program ended, Cuomo announced that he’s leaving the show through his social media. The statement reads, “The way my time ended at CNN was hard. While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom this past week has been extraordinarily difficult.”

“Right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next. That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show… I will miss our conversations a great deal — but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future,” he said. 

Ross ended the program on Monday by saying, “And good Monday afternoon to you. This is Brian Ross, from the Law and Crime Network, sitting in today for Chris Cuomo.” However, he did not give any indications of who will be the next host for the show.

SiriusXM released a statement that says, “Following Chris Cuomo’s statement that he is leaving his SiriusXM show, ‘Let’s Get After It’ will no longer air. We thank Chris for his work at SiriusXM.”

CNN fired Cuomo on Saturday after new details emerged about his efforts to help his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who was fighting sexual harrasment allegations that led to his resignation. 

A former colleague of Chris Cuomo also accused him of sexual misconduct last week. The unidentified accuser’s attorney, Debra Kratz, said when her client “heard the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN.” 

Cuomo’s representative, Steven Goldberg, denied the allegations in a statement.
