The 74th annual New York Greek Parade is coming to WWOR/Channel 9 Sunday afternoon. Arguably, the city’s most famous Greek-American personality, WNYW/Channel 5 anchor Ernie Anastos, is co-hosting the live event on the Fox sister station. Anastos will be joined by Fox Business Network anchor Nicole Petallides.
This year’s parade focuses on Greece’s 191st anniversary of independence. New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez – who is Cuban-American but enjoys Greek food — will serve as Grand Marshall.
More than 100,000 participants and spectators are expected to line Fifth Avenue Sunday afternoon. WWOR’s coverage runs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
