Disgraced television host Chris Cuomo has landed a job back in the cable news industry after being fired by CNN late last year.
Chris Cuomo will join NewsNation as a primetime host this fall with a new hour-long show, according to The Washington Post.
The report said that the small cable news network aims to provide “down-the-middle, unbiased news reporting and analysis.” It’s unclear how Cuomo helps NewsNation reach its objective considering that he was under investigation at CNN over his alleged role in trying to help his brother, then-New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, navigate a sexual misconduct scandal that ultimately led to his resignation.
Chris Cuomo filed a $125 million lawsuit against CNN, demanding $15 million in lost salary and $110 million in further damages, after the network fired him following an investigation into him.
Debra S. Katz, a Left-wing attorney, said in a statement in December that she was representing a client who claimed that Chris Cuomo engaged in “serious sexual misconduct” against her at another network.
Katz said she notified CNN of the allegations and that the allegations are ultimately what led to Chris Cuomo being fired from CNN. Katz said in a statement that Cuomo demonstrated hypocrisy when he claimed he cared “very deeply” about the issue of sexual harassment only to be revealed in an investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James to have aided his brother’s efforts to smear his accusers.
