October Snowstorm Spells Overtime Assignment for WNYW Anchor Ernie Anastos

In trying to return some normalcy to viewers’ lives, and preparing them for the morning commute, newscasts had typical team coverage to cope with the aftermath of a bizarre October blast of winter.

However, one channel was not typical, bringing in its “big gun” for last night’s coverage. 

Ernie Anastos, the veteran WNYW/Channel 5 anchor, was on the air for Sunday’s 10 p.m. newscast with Christina Park. With many angles to explore, Sports Extra was preempted, expanding the broadcast to an hour.  

There was no 6 p.m. newscast on WNYW due to its NFL commitment.

You’ll recall, in August, Anastos teamed up with Park for the Sunday night newscasts as Hurricane Irene cut a path of destruction across the tri-state.
