Chris Cuomo is stepping away from his role as a radio host days after getting fired by CNN.
Former CNN host Chris Cuomo announced on Monday that he will not be hosting his SiriusXM radio show any longer.
"The way my time ended at CNN was hard," Cuomo tweeted in a statement on Monday. "While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So, right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next. That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show."

Cuomo expressed his gratitude for the support he's received from SiriusXM and from his listeners. "I will miss our conversations a great deal — but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future."
Cuomo skipped hosting his show on Monday. Former ABC News journalist Brian Ross served as a fill-in host for Cuomo's show, Let's Get After It with Chris Cuomo, at noon EST on SiriusXM. Ross did not offer a reason for Cuomo's absence.
