"This is not how I want my time at CNN to end"

CNN announced in a statement Saturday night that Cuomo was terminated “effective immediately.”

Cuomo took to Twitter shortly after to post a statement.

“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,” he wrote. “So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”
