Anastos is pleased that his bosses have embraced the show idea.
“Fox 5 committed to giving me the opportunity to do a number of specials throughout the year,” Anastos says. “I’ve chosen really to focus on this type of program, so they’ve been cooperative and generous.”
The WNYW/Channel 5 anchor brought his trademark smile to the first installment in May.
“The reason that I want to do this is because I feel it’s important to keep this kind of balance and positive kind of information out there,” Anastos tells FishbowlNY. “The last special that I did, I really received a lot of responses.”
