After nine years and several jobs later, Dave Price is back home at WNYW/Channel 5. Price took the seat next to Rosanna Scotto on Good Day New York. Good Day viewers will recall Price on the show from 1999 to 2003, then as the weather anchor.
“Look at who the wind blew in this morning,” Scotto opened the broadcast.
“I was fired,” Price retorted. “So I was just sitting around for 18 months.”
Gaining chemistry in front of the camera is one of the keys to making a morning newscast work, and the most elusive. Greg Kelly vacated Good Day to become the station’s lead anchor beginning tonight. For four years, “Rosanna and Greg” had a perfect connection with each other and viewers. Despite Price’s previous work on Good Day, and occasionally with Scotto, that will take time.
“I’m not at home, I’m not comfortable yet,” Price said.
“Good, we don’t want you to get comfortable just yet,” Scotto responded.
After exiting Channel 5, Price worked as a weatherman at Channel 2 then as a meteorologist for CBS News.
“It’s been two years since you’ve actually been allowed back in the building,” Scotto said. “Weren’t you escorted from this place at one point?”
