The New York Times Loves NY1

The true test of a New Yorker? Ask them what they think of NY1. If they say that they don’t like the channel, or even hesitate to express their feelings, they are not a New Yorker.

NY1 is the TV soul of New York, and Pat Kiernan is our spiritual leader. And during Hurricane Sandy, The New York Times noticed that, and has lavished praise upon the lovable channel:

It [NY1] gave a disaster human scale, and also projected calm and authority as circumstances deteriorated. Major broadcast and cable networks abandoned their prime-time programming to cover the storm frenetically live, but only NY1’s coverage was unhurried. Over the course of the night, its broadcast became a comforting town square, the coverage not as improvisational as you might expect.

Yes, that’s right! The Times then went on to highlight several NY1ers, including Zack Fink, Jeanine Ramirez, Ruschell Boone, John Schiumo and Dean Meminger. Oh and of course the Times gave a shout out to Kiernan, who by  4:00 am Tuesday “was in a suit and tie behind the anchor desk, keeping the ship steady.”
