Career

 

Cuomo Prime Time

Chris started a news and analysis show aired on CNN & CNN international in 2017, presented by himself, produced by Melanie Buck. 

It is a one-hour live show aired from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm ET and replayed from 1:00 am to 2:00 am. 

White House Attorney Rudy Giuliani was the first on the show to have a "One on One" style interview. Chris questioned Rudy on his son's presence at the Trump Tower at the same time a Russian intelligence operative was also (allegedly) present.

Chris has interviewed popular figures like- Bernie Sanders (Democratic party senator & two-time prime candidate for Democratic party presidency nomination), Anthony Scaramucci (former White House Communications Director) among others.

The show was previously aired from "Time Warner Center" in New York City. Since late 2019 the show is being aired from the studio at 30 Hudson Yards, New York City. Some episodes have been aired from CNN's Washington, D.C studios.

After a week-long trial in 2017 (August 28, 2017 – August 31, 2017), following a month-long run in January 2018 (January 9, 2018, to February 1, 2018), the show has been run regularly since June 4, 2018. He confessed to David Axelrod on "The Axe Files" podcast that he wore the same suit every day for a month on the January trial run of the program. [2]

Some of the segments of the show are titled:

Speaking of the show, its approach, and the goal, Chris said: [2]

You have to hold people to answer the questions. There is too much evasiveness, too much pandering, too much playing with the facts. You have to cut out the bias

 

Journalism - Activism

 

Fitness - Training

When it comes to exercise, I am all about mixing it up. The body adapts quickly and keeping it guessing keeps it efficient and burning fat and growing at an accelerated rate. And that's what you want. Max return on time invested

He attributes his fitness to his regular healthy diet

I am like a dog: I can eat the same thing every day. Egg whites, fresh turkey, avocado, spinach, onion, sweet potato. Decaf iced coffee. Lots of water with lemon

 

Controversies

An on-air argument with elder brother Andrew

New York governor & Chris's older brother Andrew and Chris had a heated on-air argument with each other on family-related personal issues in April 2020. It all started with Chris sharing an embarrassing picture of his brother. The two became an internet sensation overnight. 

 

Hate Speech argument

In 2015 Chris argued through his twitter account that hate speech doesn't come under freedom of speech as guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution. Media experts, legal professionals, Twitterati debated that everything except a threat of real physical danger is allowed in free speech. It was a reality check on the health of the society, a much-needed debate once in a while.

Excessive questioning on religion

During the 2016 presidential candidate interviews, Chris was accused of asking excessive religion-related questions- "Are you praying & going to church?", "Why don't you go to church?". In 2016 Chris's comment on Wikileaks leak of Hillary Clinton's emails, that 'nobody except the media has the legal rights to show them' was criticized.
