WCBS and WPIX Win With Extended Storm Coverage

Another day, another winter storm with which New Yorkers must deal. This time, though, it was primarily a serious ice storm for the morning rush.

WCBS and WPIX get praise for extra coverage this morning.

Once again, Channel 2 is showing that they are the station to turn to when weather gets rough.

Following The Early Show, anchors Rob Morrison and Mary Calvi guided viewers with aplomb to the latest.

WCBS evening meteorologist Lonnie Quinn joined the morning team today.  

That team includes Mobile 2, quickly becoming a signature part of their storm reporting, which deployed its “fleet of cars.”

As conditions began to slowly improve, WCBS left the air until 10 a.m. (before returning with the usual noon newscast).

From Morning to Night, A Successful 2010 for WABC-TV

WABC-TV/Channel 7 is probably sorry to usher in the New Year. In figures released by the Nielsen Company (and obtained by WABC), the station topped all competitors for weekday newscasts in 2010.

Starting out in mornings, WABC expanded Eyewitness News to 4:30 a.m. during the week. Led by Lori Stokes, Ken Rosato, and Bill Evans, the additional 30 minutes beat all rivals in Household (HH) rating and doubled the amount of Adults 25 to 54.

In the 5 a.m. hour, WABC maintained its lead over all other stations, with a full year HH rating that was at least 36 percent larger than any other channel. Among the key demographic Adults 25 to 54, Eyewitness News This Morning at least doubled the closest rival.

At 6 a.m., good fortunes continued, as Channel 7 held a 27 percent advantage over its closest competitor.  WABC surged to a 45 percent lead in the Adults 25 to 54 demo.

A Blizzard of Coverage by Local Stations

As the blizzard began to barrel down on New York yesterday with varying intensity, stations gave viewers information on the storm ending their Christmas holiday with varying results.

The best of the bunch was WABC, which provided top-of-the-hour updates until 3 p.m. with meteorologist Bill Evans. After that WABC, which had no sports commitments, went full throttle with complete c0verage. The seriousness of the impending storm was shown when Bill Ritter was brought in to co-anchor coverage. Ritter was joined by weekend anchor Sandra Bookman. For the next four hours, Ritter and Bookman took viewers on a tour of the snow with reporters stationed throughout the region. The meteorologists’ hands were all on deck as well, with Lee Goldberg and Jeff Smith as part of the special broadcast.

Part of WABC’s coverage was to take Mayor Bloomberg’s press conference live. Another feather in their cap—they would be the only station to carry it in its entirety. Ritter and Bookman, along with seven live reporters and Goldberg and Smith returned for an expanded 11 p.m. newscast.
