Now that former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is out at the major cable news outlet, he also announced on Monday that he will be resigning from his SiriusXM radio show.
He also foreshadowed a comeback at some point in the future.
Cuomo made this announcement in a post on his Instagram account.
Cuomo: ‘I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show’
Cuomo wrote, “The way my time ended at CNN was hard.”
“While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult,” he wrote. “So, 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,” 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.
At the time, his suspension came about due to evidence that he worked closely with his brother, former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, during his scandal involving allegations of sexual assault.
By Saturday, CNN announced Cuomo had been “terminated,” due to “additional information” coming out during the news outlet’s investigation into the matter.

Investigation Finds Cuomo Allegedly Overstepping 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.
