CNN president Jeff Zucker told the network’s staffers on Tuesday morning that former host Chris Cuomo “deserved termination” and won’t be paid any severance, according to reports.
During a town hall-style meeting, Zucker also called Saturday’s firing of the “Cuomo Prime Time” star “a lesson we have all learned from,” the Wrap reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Zucker said Cuomo’s secret efforts to help his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, battle sexual harassment allegations violated CNN’s standards and practices in a way that went “too far and deserved termination,” the website said.
Zucker also revealed that “diversity will be a factor” in the decision on who replaces Cuomo – implying his successor will not be a white male.
The CNN president said the network is going to look “at all possibilities. Obviously, as we’ve said before, diversity is always a factor that we will take into account.”
When asked if he has any “regret” for not suspending Cuomo sooner, Zucker said, “Hindsight in all of this is very easy and I do feel, as I’ve said before, and I said again this morning, this was a very unique situation and so we did allow for some leeway for Chris that, you know, was unique to that situation for somebody in that role with a brother in that role during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. So, I do think that we tried to make the right decisions at the right times.”
CNN boss Jeff Zucker says the network will take diversity into account while searching for Chris Cuomo’s replacement and he is “comfortable” with how the firing played out. https://t.co/ucd8pWfxIi
