There are a zillion different year-end countdowns and awards. Well, before too many days go by, here’s one more.
These are the “Barmash Awards” given for the best talent and newscasts in New York TV news. This is by a committee of one—me.
Best Newscast (early morning)
Despite only being together for a couple of years, this is well-oiled machine. They have a terrific balance of good personality and good news sense. The Rodriguez and Gargiulo anchor team took some time to establish their chemistry—but by 2010 became the gold standard for dawn patrol. Another important plus is Cimino, doing that shift for more than a decade. He is one the best forecasters, not just at the station, but could easily hold is own among the “prime timers” as well.
Many more “awards” after the jump.
