Cuomo has worked at nearly all the news networks throughout his career, working for Fox News, CNBC, MSNBC, ABC, and CNN, finally getting his own show from his good friend and boss Jeff Zucker, who was also fired at that time for ignoring the company’s rule on dating subordinates.

Cuomo was fired last year after he was found to have helped his brother, then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, battle his own sexual harassment claims from 11 different women.

The broadcaster – who was believed to earn $6 million a year – did so while simultaneously working for a journalist at a network tasked with reporting impartially on the scandal.

In March the broadcast journalist served CNN with a $125 million arbitration claim over what he claims is his wrongful dismissal.

That suit is believed to be ongoing.

According to the lawsuit: ‘Cuomo has had his journalistic integrity unjustifiably smeared, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and damaging him in amounts exceeding $125 million, which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the Agreement, but future wages lost as a result of CNN’s efforts to destroy his reputation in violation of the Agreement.’

Cuomo launched his own comeback podcast last week, The Chris Cuomo Project, staking out a defiant tone as he released the first episode – with new shows coming out on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In the podcast, Cuomo made the surprise declaration that he is not a Democrat, despite his deep family ties to the party, and defended the actions that led to his ouster from CNN.

‘As for CNN, I’ll never be a hater. CNN has great people, CNN has a great purpose, and I wish them all the best, and I miss so many of the people there. But it’s time for me to move on, and I believe I can be more than I ever was before,’ he said.

Cuomo also said that he does not consider himself a Democrat, despite the fact that both his father Mario and brother Andrew served as Democratic governors of New York.

‘I love my father, I love my brother, I respect them both tremendously, but I’m no Democrat,’ he said.

‘And I am not here to make any of you comfortable being a lefty. I want you to question why you are. I want you to question everything,’ added Cuomo.

Now, it was announced on Tuesday that the 51-year-old will also host a new prime time show on NewsNation.

Sean Compton, Nexstar Media Inc.’s President of Network, said: “Chris joins our growing team of seasoned, award-winning journalists and will further our efforts to continue to ensure fairness and transparency in our news reporting and talk shows.”

NewsNation has long billed itself as an impartial, straight-down-the-line network that focuses solely on reporting the news, without any political angle.

Cuomo appeared on “Dan Abrams Live’.

On Abrams’ show, when Cuomo was announced as joining the network, he told viewers: ‘I want to help. I want to find a way to help people. I’m going to come to NewsNation and I want to build something special.’

The former CNN star added: ‘I’ve decided that I can’t go back to what people see as the big game. I don’t think I can make a difference there.’

Cuomo had formerly said that some his former colleagues, namely Jake Tapper and Don Lemon, should have called him following his dramatic ousting from CNN in 2021.

He was asked about Tapper and Lemon ‘coming out aggressively’ against the host, and Cuomo said: ‘They’re good people. They’re good people.’

He added: ‘I cannot blame people for acting on what they’re told. Should they have called me? Of course. But I understand the circumstances, also.’

Cuomo went on: ‘I understand why they may not have felt that was an option. But these are good people. They take their jobs seriously. I’m not gonna judge them for what they say about me based on what they knew and didn’t know. I wish them well.

Asked about his firing from CNN, Cuomo said, ‘I remember the phone call but I don’t remember any emotions around it.’

He went on: ‘You know, there’d been so much negativity, so intense, for so long, that I didn’t see coming.’

Cuomo added: ‘I don’t know if I were numb or whatever it was but it was just one more thing that I was going to have to deal with.’

Cuomo concluded by saying: ‘I’m going to do the job. I’m going to go where the news is and I’m going to try very hard to be fair.’

‘NewsNation believes in the work I am doing with the Chris Cuomo Project, and I look forward to building something special here – covering news wherever it happens and having conversations that cater to common concerns and solutions rather than political parties or the political circus.’
