Former CNN ‘Prime Time’ anchor Chris Cuomo applied to be a volunteer firefighter in the Hamptons


Disgraced former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo apparently wanted more “heat” in his life, as it was revealed that he applied to be a volunteer firefighter in East Hampton shortly after his departure from “the most trusted name in news.”

The East Hampton Fire Department was no doubt surprised to receive the application from the former primetime anchor, who was ousted for aiding his former NY governor brother, Andrew Cuomo during his sexual harassment scandal.

While the application made it to the interview phase, Cuomo reportedly withdrew after he learned how much of his time he would have to commit.

According to the New York Post, sources told one media outlet that he “balked” at the amount of time required by the volunteer agency.

“It’s a very time-consuming thing. There are monthly meetings and drills and you have to meet a percentage of your calls,” EHFD Chief Duane Forrester said to the outlet. “That’s why we don’t have many celebrities.”

Earlier this year, Cuomo filed a lawsuit demanding $125m in damages from CNN.

The New York-based East Hampton Fire Department covers a 31-square-mile area and is around 150 members in strength.
