“That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show,” Cuomo acknowledged.
“I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there,” he continued. “I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my loyal listeners. I will miss our conversations a great deal – but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future.”
On Wednesday, Cuomo said on his SiriusXM show that his suspension – later to become a firing – from CNN was hurtful.
His suspension was prompted by evidence that Cuomo worked closely with former Democratic New York Governor. Andrew Cuomo during the scandal surrounding sexual assault allegations.
By Saturday, CNN announced Cuomo had been “terminated,” due to “additional information” coming out during the news outlet’s investigation into the matter.

Investigative Findings Show That Cuomo Has Overstepped Ethical Lines
The Washington Post reported on some of the investigation’s findings:
“The 348-page interview transcript and communications records released Monday as part of the state investigation showed that Chris Cuomo played a significant role in his brother’s rapid-response operation to the harassment allegations, drafting up statements for his brother to read and weighing in on strategy debates.”
“Most significantly for his role at CNN, the documents showed that Cuomo leaned on his journalistic sources to glean information about forthcoming articles that could negatively impact his brother and his futile fight to keep the governorship,” the Post also noted.
