CNN finally fires my prime reporter: Helped brother who is on trial for sexual

American journalist Chris Cuomo has been fired by CNN for helping his brother, former New York governor Andrew Cuomo, as he struggled with allegations of sexual harassment.

The decision came after CNN said additional information had emerged about Chris Cuomo's involvement in the protection of his older brother.

Andrew Cuomo resigned in August after prosecutors said he had harassed staff.

Journalist Cuomo, said in a statement that he was disappointed and that it was not as he wanted his time on CNN to end.

He had worked for CNN since 2013 and became one of the most well-known news presenters, most recently directing CNN coverage of the 2020 US presidential election.

A CNN statement said a "respected law firm" had been hired to investigate Chris Cuomo's efforts to help his politician brother fight sexual harassment allegations. But while that review was taking place, "new information has come to light" that led to the termination of his contract with CNN.
