Mayor Bloomberg’s soda ban was scheduled to go into effect tomorrow, meaning no more “gulps” larger than 16 ounces, or two-liters with a pizza. But a judge has invalidated the ban of sugary, super-sized drinks.
WPIX reporter Greg Mocker made his first CNN appearance yesterday to discuss the latest attempt by Bloomberg to get, if not force, the city to be healthy.
‘I just always talk from my point of view as a guy who lives in the city, is amazed by it, and confused by it at times.” Mocker tells FishbowlNY.
His connection to the cable news network is the weekend executive producer, who had been producing Dr. Steve on WPIX and other Tribune stations.
“Maybe I can do some more of those,” Mocker says. ”I think anytime we can talk about New York City is good.”
During the week, of course, viewers can find Mocker on the PIX News at Ten, tracking down an MTA official, or perhaps getting to the bottom of potholes.
“We have momentum at Channel 11,” Mocker says. “I like what we’re doing. There is a sense there that people are turning to us.”
