Anderson Cooper Addresses Chris Cuomo’s Suspension On-Air

By A.J. Katz 

At the end of his 8 p.m. hour, Anderson Cooper delivered the news about Chris Cuomo‘s suspension from CNN on Tuesday.

“Some news now about this network,” said Cooper. “It involves Chris Cuomo, the host of Cuomo Primetime. New documents released this week indicated that Chris was more intimately involved than previously known in helping his brother, former New York governor Andrew Cuomo, craft a defense amid a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations.”

Cooper then read the CNN statement released earlier today, accompanied by an on-screen graphic showing the statement.


He ended the segment with: “The second hour of 360 is right after the break.”

As Cooper stated, AC 360 will run for two hours (8-10 p.m.) while Cuomo is suspended, matching the show’s format before Cuomo Primetime launched in the 9 p.m. hour in 2018.
