Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean and WPIX reporter Magee Hickey were crowned New York’s funniest reporters over the weekend, marking the first year in the history of the eight-year contest that there was a tie for first place.
It’s the second year in a row that the winner has come from Fox News. “Fox and Friends” weekend anchor Clayton Morris was the 2012 winner. Syndicated radio host Peter Schiff came in second place and Fox Business Network’s Charles Payne was third.
The annual stand-up competition was held Sunday at Comic Strip Live. The Blaze’s Laurie Dhue and Fox News’ Dr. Manny Alvarez were among the other competitors, and HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell served as a judge.
Next month the 8th annual “New York’s Funniest Reporter” contest will be held at Comic Strip Live in New York’s Upper East Side. The 2012 winner of the contest--Fox News correspondent Clayton Morris–will be back for an encore, with HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell on board as a judge.
This year’s field has a heavy Fox News influence. FNC senior meteorologist Janice Dean will be competing, as will FNC senior medical contributor Dr. Manny Alvarez and FBN contributor Charles Payne. The Blaze anchor Laurie Dhue (formerly of CNN and Fox News) will compete as well, alongside Magee Hickey of New York’s WPIX. Peter Schiff of Peter Schiff Radio and Newsday‘s Chris Serico round out the field.
Proceeds from the event go to the Humane Society of New York. More information, after the jump.
A Valentine’s Day announcement from Megyn Kelly this afternoon on her Fox News Channel program: the “America Live” anchor is pregnant with her third child.
Kelly’s announcement came after meteorologist Janice Dean asked Kelly if she and her husband, novelist Douglas Brunt, exchange Valentine’s Day gifts. “We always struggle to find just the right gift, and yet this year I believe that we’ve found the perfect solution,” Kelly said. “Happily, Doug and I are expecting another baby.”
TV news organizations are gearing up for covering Sandy. There is still lots of uncertainty but here is what we know so far. We will update this story as we get more information.
The Weather Channel not surprisingly, has a slew of coverage planned. “Wake Up With Al” will air this weekend starting at 5:30 AM, and 5 AM starting next week.
- Who is Janice Dean‘s role model? Her Fox News colleague Megyn Kelly, the meteorologist says. “If I was a young girl coming out of college, she’s someone I would aspire to be like; she’s very smart, doing great in her career, has kids and a great husband, and is beautiful inside and out,” Dean tells I Want Her Job.
I am definitely a NEWS NERD. I’m enjoying working for FOX during an election year. Politics can be more entertaining to watch than professional sports or reality television! My other passion is fitness. I like to compete in triathlons and marathons. I ran distance on the track team at UNCW. And I was an exercise instructor in Charlotte. My favorite class is Turbo Kick.

Janice Dean‘s life has undergone some major changes in the past few years: she revealed her battle with multiple sclerosis, got married, and had two children. The Fox News Channel meteorologist talks with Celebrity Parents magazine about how she handles it all:
Will people stop you on the street to ask about the forecast?
It’s funny; we had this discussion yesterday. In short, yes, people do, but I think they don’t realize the stress that comes with forecasting weather. We’ve had a very active year in terms of snowstorms, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. As a forecaster, you want to convey the message, but you don’t want to hype it up, either. You want to make sure that viewers have the information they need to make a decision.
You have two boys, Matthew  and Theodore . What has it been like being pregnant on camera?
I loved it. I love sharing that part of my life with the viewers. The only thing is that I don’t like to block the screen! Read more
Fox News Channel meteorologist Janice Dean gets emotional talking with Ann Curry on “Today.” Dean opens up about her battle with multiple sclerosis: the diagnosis at 35 and what she’s learned since. “I am so lucky that I have a great career. But if it went away tomorrow, that would be okay, because I have something greater than that: a wonderful family that means everything to me.”
Dean said that she went to the hospital yesterday: The weather was sunny and cold for his arrival but “thankfully we didn’t have 20 inches of snow to drive through!”
The weather machine also said he seems like a quiet little one — very well-behaved. Mother and son are doing well and will be back home this weekend. His big brother Matthew is waiting to meet him.
