Nearly every New York TV station (with the except of FiOS 1 and PBS-owned WNET/Channel 13) went live just after 11:30 this morning for an update from Mayor Bloomberg on the snowstorm aftermath.
WPIX, which did cover Bloomberg’s opening remarks, was the first to leave the press conference as soon as the ”Q and A” portion started. Channel 11 returned for the final seven minutes of Jerry Springer.
WWOR took the feed of sister station WNYW.
Kelly opined, “It’s a tough job, and it comes with the territory, Mayor Bloomberg. People want their snow out of there. You knew that getting into it.”
WNBC, not usually on with a newscast at noon, yanked The Rundown and Daily Connection, in favor of special snow cleanup coverage.
