Chris Cuomo won’t get severance from CNN and lost a publishing deal for a coming book, the latest fallout from the former CNN anchor’s involvement in helping his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, respond to allegations of sexual harassment.
During a virtual town-hall meeting with employees on Tuesday, CNN President Jeff Zucker said the network won’t pay Mr. Cuomo a severance, according to people familiar with the matter. Mr. Zucker also said he wished Chris Cuomo had taken a leave of absence in May when allegations that he participated in strategy sessions with his brother first surfaced.
