News Radio Anchor Recovering from Brutal Upper East Side Attack

FishbowlNY joins the many others in the NYC media community who have already expressed their best wishes to 1010WINS news anchor Brian Carey for a speedy recovery.

Carey was found Monday night in the lobby of his East 61st Street building by a neighbor, semi-conscious and sporting a broken jaw and other injuries after an apparent robbery. He is in hospital in serious condition. The New York Post reports that he knew the attacker and has already ID-ed the suspect.

Update: 1010 WINS Anchor Changes

Here’s a follow-up to a story we first reported last week.

Beginning on Monday, 1010 WINS started rotating two anchors every 30 minutes throughout the day, instead of three anchors in 20-minute intervals—a staple for decades.  

A source with knowledge of the changes tells FishbowlNY that the all-news station is also tweaking the editor shift. WINS is actually increasing editors daily from three to four.

The editor shifts will correspond to the new anchor shifts.

1010 WINS Shifting Daytime Anchors

More changes are coming to 1010 WINS. Starting Monday, the all-news station is shaking up its daytime formatics.

The familiar three-anchor, 20-minute block is being trimmed down to two anchors each half hour.

Lee Harris will handle the top of the hour from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m., while Judy DeAngelis anchors the bottom of the hour.

Larry Kanter and Sandi Klein, former afternoon anchors, slide into the reworked midday shift from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The afternoon drive, which runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., is anchored by former morning newscaster Brian Carey, and Lori Madden.

“The most successful radio stations are those that don’t stand still,” News director Ben Mevorach tells FishbowlNY. “WINS has continuously evolved over its 45-year history.”

Part of that evolution, Mevorach says, included creating new headline packages a few months ago.

WINS keeps its 20-minute news cycles intact.
