WNYW Sports Anchor Duke Castiglione Gets Multi-Year Extension

You’ll be seeing a lot more of sports anchor Duke Castiglione. Sources tell FishbowlNY that he has agreed to a multi-year extension with the Fox O&O. Since joining WNYW five years ago, Castiglione has covered every major sporting event. But none has been bigger than the New York Giants’ stirring Super Bowl XLII run. Castiglione capped the Giants’ dream season hosting the post-game show, and subsequent victory parade for Channel 5.

As the G-Men look toward a repeat, Castiglione, 39, will co-host the Giants season kick-off special, Defending the Throne, September 1 on sister station WWOR.

“Duke gives NY sports fans more than just scores and highlights; viewers get an all-access pass to their favorite sports teams,” WNYW news director Dianne Doctor, says. “His exceptional reporting continues to be an asset to our station and representative of our dedication to local sports coverage.”

Castiglione’s sports duties include hosting the long-running weekend wrap-up program Sports Extra, Sundays at 10:30 p.m. In addition, he covers Yankee post-games for Channel 9. The next game is August 14 versus the Texas Rangers.

WCBS Rides the Giants’ Road to Glory to Impressive Post-Super Bowl Numbers

With the anchor team of Otis Livingston and Chris Wragge positioned on the Lucas Oil Stadium field, WCBS/Channel 2 concluded its special week of Super Bowl coverage with an extended post-game show. 

Making the station’s Big Blue bonanza even more impressive was that WCBS isn’t even the home to the NFL’s NFC. That honor belongs to WNYW/Channel 5. In addition, Channel 2 didn’t televise the Super Bowl last night, as that privilege went to WNBC/Channel 4.

However, WCBS did manage to sway enough viewers at 11 p.m. last night, only losing in the time slot to WNBC, according to Nielsen overnight figures.

WCBS scored a 6.1 rating and an 11 share of the audience at 11 p.m. WNYW, which sequed from its 10 p.m. newscast into Giants post-game and Sports Extra, paled in comparison. The Fox O & O notched just a 2.5 and 4 immediately after the game. By 11 p.m. with Duke Castiglione reporting from Indianapolis, the numbers dropped to a 1.9 and 3.
