Former CNN primetime host Chris Cuomo modified his Twitter bio to “free agent” after which teased a return to media on Tuesday:

While there are a lot of higher methods to announce you aren’t useless, evaluating your self to a seed will suffice. I suppose.
Cuomo has not commented on his future in media since he left his day by day SiriusXM program after CNN fired him in December. Instead, he has been getting a authorized workforce in place to sue CNN for a reported $125 million. We want him nicely in his quest.
Cuomo’s future will depend upon how exterior suitors view his ousting from CNN.
CNN says it terminated Cuomo as a result of he didn’t disclose the extent to which he aided his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in combating sexual harassment allegations. Chris Cuomo disputes this declare, and we’ve since realized that his former boss Jeff Zucker additionally assisted Andrew Cuomo.
However, different stories say CNN fired Cuomo after studying of a sexual misconduct criticism that dates again to Cuomo’s time at ABC.
Streaming companies like AppleTV+ and Spotify can transfer previous Cuomo selecting his brother over his job, however hardly anybody has made a comeback from Me Too. It’s uncertain Cuomo would be the first.
Even within the situation during which Chris Cuomo clears his title, he’s nonetheless unlikely to discover a position with a standard media outlet. He’s not going again to ABC given previous points, and NBC and CBS don’t have a gap for his bombastic type. Cuomo can be white and male, doubtless eliminating him from consideration at MSNBC.
Cuomo could have to exit on his personal. It is 2022, so he might begin a podcast or a YouTube present tomorrow. And although he wouldn’t make the $6 million a 12 months he made at CNN, he has sufficient attain to monetize his impartial content material with over 2 million Twitter followers.
I predict Chris Cuomo will return in some kind by the 2022 midterms. Try to comprise your pleasure.
