Double Pregnancy for WLNY Couch Hosts

If there was ever perfect timing for a pregnancy, this may it! WLNY’s The Couch hosts Carolina Bermudez and Lisa Kerney announced this morning they are both pregnant.

Kerney also does sports reports for sister station WCBS/Channel 2.

It will be Bermudez’s first child, while Kerney has an 18-month-old.

The Couch‘s third member John Elliott hosted a video montage asking for advice from WCBS working moms, including Mary Calvi and Cindy Hsu.

The segment concluded with an emotional moment as sisters of the expectant mothers phoned in.

The good news could not have come at a more opportune time for the station. Last month, morning anchor Rob Morrison was forced to resign after allegedly assaulting his wife, CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison.

WLNY Airs I Dream of Jeannie President’s Day Marathon

When you think President’s Day, you think of Lincoln, Washington, and Jeannie? On Monday, WLNY is airing a marathon of the classic 60s sitcom starring Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman.

The 12-hour marathon of I Dream of Jeannie begins at 9 a.m. with Live From the Couch hosts John Elliott, Carolina Bermudez, and Lisa Kerney. The trio will discuss classic scenes and trivia from the series.

WLNY is quickly becoming a destination for classic sitcoms on holidays.  Most recently, The Odd Couple New Year’s Day marathon attracted nearly 1 million viewers.

A Pair of Classic TV Shows to Ring in 2013

Fans of vintage sitcoms can celebrate the new year in style.

WPIX/Channel 11 renews its ball dropping tradition with a marathon of The Honeymooners starting at 11 p.m. New Year’s Eve. The Jackie Gleason touchstone comedy began on WPIX in 1976, and has been part of the December 31/January 1 programming since 1996. WPIX airs 26 classic episodes featuring the exploits of Ralph Kramden, his bosom buddy Ed Norton, and their wives Alice and Trixie. Channel 11 halts the marathon at 4 a.m. for the PIX Morning News. Following the respite, The Honeymooners is back in action from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

But wait, there’s more.

WLNY/TV 10 55 is set with another New York staple, The Odd Couple. The 38 episodes chronicling the struggles between roommates, neat freak Felix Unger and sloven sportwriter Oscar Madison.

The marathon, which begins at midnight, runs until 9 p.m. It takes on a bittersweet tone, as Jack Klugman, a two-time Emmy winner for his portrayal of Madison, died last week at age 90.

Each episode in the marathon is hosted by Carolina Bermudez, John Elliott, and Lisa Kerney of WLNY’s Live From the Couch. The marathon concludes with perhaps the funniest Odd Couple episode from 1972, when Felix and Oscar compete on Password from 1972.

A change is coming to the highly-rated Elvis Duran and the Morning Zoo, based at New York’s Z100/WHTZ and syndicated to Clear Channel stations nationwide.
