Embattled anchor Chris Cuomo 'terminated' by CNN 'effective immediately'

Embattled anchor Chris Cuomo has been 'terminated' by CNN 'effective immediately,' the network announced in a statement Saturday.

'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,' the network said in the statement. 

'We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.' 

The announcement comes after the network said last week they were conducting an in-depth investigation into allegations that their star newscaster helped his brother, Andrew Cuomo, then the governor of New York, fight off a sexual harassment scandal.
