New York (CNN) CNN said Saturday that anchor Chris Cuomo has been "terminated" by the network, "effective immediately.".
CNN said in a statement: "Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother's defense.
In a statement of his own Saturday, Chris Cuomo said, "This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother.
On the day his brother resigned, back in August, Chris Cuomo told viewers that "this situation is unlike anything I could have imagined.".
CNN management showed support for Cuomo, and "Cuomo Prime Time," often the network's highest-rated show, stayed on the air throughout the controversy.
But as "Reliable Sources" reported at the time , some CNN staffers were angry at Cuomo and his violations of journalistic norms.
With information in the texts and documents pointing to a serious breach of CNN standards, Cuomo was notified of his termination on Saturday. »
