Who is Chris Cuomo’s older brother?
Chris is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, and the nature of their relationship was put under a microscope when the New York governor was accused by multiple women of sexual harassment.
It was revealed in May of 2021 that Chris Cuomo took part in strategy calls that instructed his big brother how to respond to the numerous allegations.
CNN confirmed in a statement to The Washington Post that Chris Cuomo had taken part in the calls but added his involvement was a mistake.
“Chris has not been involved in CNN’s extensive coverage of the allegations against Governor Cuomo – on air or behind the scenes,” the network said in a statement at the time.

“In part because, as he has said on his show, he could never be objective. But also because he often serves as a sounding board for his brother.
“However, it was inappropriate to engage in conversations that included members of the Governor’s staff, which Chris acknowledges.
“He will not participate in such conversations going forward.”
Chris Cuomo is said to have told the governor during the calls not to resign and encouraged him to take a defiant stance against the allegations, according to The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported that Chris Cuomo used the phrase “cancel culture” during one call.
