Early life and education

Cuomo was born in the New York City borough of Queens. He is the son of Matilda (nee Raffa) and Mario Cuomo, the former Governor of New York, and the brother of Andrew Cuomo, the current Governor of New York.[2]

He was educated at The Albany Academy, a private university preparatory day school in Albany, New York, followed by Yale University, where he obtained an undergraduate degree, and Fordham University where he obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.). He is a licensed attorney.[1][2]


Cuomo's early career in journalism included appearances related to social and political issues on CNBC, MSNBC, and CNN. He was a correspondent for Fox News and Fox Broadcast Network's Fox Files, where he covered a wide range of stories focusing on controversial social issues.[1][2][5] He also served as a political policy analyst for Fox News.[1][2]

At ABC and as co-anchor of 20/20, his coverage included a look at heroin addiction.[1][2][5] His year-long coverage revealed the heroin addiction affecting suburban families.[2][5] His other work has included coverage of the Haiti earthquake, child custody, bullying, and homeless teens. Policy change has come after his undercover look at for-profit school recruiters, leading to an industry cleanup; and Cuomo's tip from a BMW owner led to a recall of over 150,000 affected models.[1][2][5]

From September 2006 to December 2009, he was the news anchor for Good Morning America.[1][2][5] He was the primary reporter on breaking news stories, both in the U.S. and around the world, including dozens of assignments in some 10 countries.[2][5] He covered the war on terrorism, embedded on multiple occasions in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq[1] (where his convoy was hit by an IED).[2][5] In the U.S., he covered shootings such as Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, and the Pennsylvania Amish school shootings, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Sago Mine collapse, and the Minneapolis bridge collapse in August 2007.[1][2][5] He anchored morning and evening coverage.[2][5]

He maintains a website, "Cuomo on the Case," where he takes questions, and which acts as a platform for his reporting and discussion on a number of issues.[2][5] He had two weekly digital programs on ABC News, The Real Deal and Focus on Faith, that discussed matters of spirituality.[1][2][5] He also appeared with Father Edward Beck on ABC News Now, the network's 24-hour digital outlet.[1][5]

In February 2013, Cuomo moved to CNN to co-host its morning show.[1][6] He made his debut on CNN as field anchor on the February 8, 2013, episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, covering the February 2013 nor'easter.[7] While serving as the co-anchor of CNN's morning show New Day, it was announced that Cuomo would move to primetime to host Cuomo Primetime.[8]

In October 2017, sister network HLN premiered a new documentary series hosted by the anchor, Inside with Chris Cuomo, which focuses on "stories affecting real people, in real towns and cities across America."[9]

In September 2018, he began hosting a two-hour weekday radio show "Let’s Get After It" on the P.O.T.U.S. channel on SiriusXM.[10]


Cuomo has received multiple Emmy Award nominations. His Good Morning America profile of the 12-year-old poet Mattie Stepanek was recognized with a News Emmy, making Cuomo one of the youngest correspondents to receive a News Emmy in network news history.[1][2][5]

He has been awarded Polk and Peabody Awards for team coverage. His work has been recognized in the areas of breaking news, business news, and legal news, with the Edward R. Murrow Award for breaking news coverage, the 2005 Gerald Loeb Award for Television Deadline business reporting for "Money for Nothing?",[11] and the American Bar Association Silver Gavel Award for investigating juvenile justice.[1][2][5]

Personal life

In 2001, Cuomo married Gotham magazine editor Cristina Greeven[2] in a Roman Catholic ceremony in Southampton, New York.[12] They reside in Manhattan with their three children.[1][2][5][13]

Cuomo also owns a home in Southampton, New York.[14]

20/20 (U.S. TV program)

20/20 is an American television newsmagazine that has been broadcast on ABC since June 6, 1978. Created by ABC News executive Roone Arledge, the program was designed similarly to CBS's 60 Minutes in that it features in-depth story packages, although it focuses more on human interest stories than international and political subjects. The program's name derives from the "20/20" measurement of visual acuity.

The hour-long program has been a staple on Friday evenings (currently airing at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time, though sometimes extended one hour earlier, particularly during the summer months) for much of the time since it moved to that timeslot from Thursdays in September 1987, though special editions of the program occasionally air on other nights.

Starting in the fall of 2018, the show dramatically shifted formats to a weekly two hour host-less documentary series of former famous scandals, with no formal announcement of the change.

Manhunt (military)

Manhunting is a term sometimes used for military operations by special operations forces and intelligence organizations to search for, and capture or kill important enemy combatants, known as high-value targets. It has been used particularly in the United States during the War on Terror.The most visible such operations conducted involve counterterrorist activities. Some involve government-sanctioned targeted killing or extrajudicial execution, and such operations have drawn political and legal controversy. Other military operations, such as hostage rescue or personnel recovery, employ similar tactics and techniques.

The term has been used for some US operations such as Operation Red Dawn, the apprehension of Saddam Hussein, the search for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and the killing of Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

Mario Cuomo

Mario Matthew Cuomo (; Italian: [ˈkwɔːmo]; June 15, 1932 – January 1, 2015) was an American politician of the Democratic Party. He served as the 52nd Governor of New York for three terms, from 1983 to 1994, Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1979 to 1982, and Secretary of State of New York from 1975 to 1978.Cuomo was known for his liberal views and public speeches, particularly his keynote speech address at the 1984 Democratic National Convention in which he sharply criticized the policies of the Reagan administration, saying, "Mr. President, you ought to know that this nation is more a 'Tale of Two Cities' than it is just a 'Shining City on a Hill.'" The speech brought him to national attention, and he was widely considered a front-runner for the Democratic nomination for President in both 1988 and 1992, though he declined to seek the nomination in both instances. His legacy as a reluctant standard-bearer for the Democrats in presidential elections led to his being dubbed "Hamlet on the Hudson".Cuomo was defeated for a fourth term as governor by George Pataki in the "Republican Revolution" of 1994. He subsequently retired from politics and served as counsel at the New York City law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher. He was the father of five, including Andrew Cuomo, the current Governor of New York, and journalist Chris Cuomo, currently an anchorman for CNN.Cuomo died of natural causes due to heart failure in Manhattan, New York City, on New Year's Day, 2015. In his obituary, The New York Times called him a "liberal beacon".
