Local NYC Stations Carry Christie Announcement Live

Local stations in New York City broke into regular programming this afternoon to carry a live announcement by Chris Christie, governor of neighboring New Jersey, on the fate of his political career.

WNYW, WCBS, WABC, WNBC and New Jersey’s WWOR all went to the press conference shortly before 1 p.m., when Christie appeared to announce that he would not seek the Republican nomination in the 2012 election.

Though Christie spoke at length, the stations went back to regularly-scheduled programming around 1:10 p.m. The exception was Fox O&O WNYW, which was the only local station still on the Christie press conference when he remarked, “The only regret I have is that I’ve given such great TV exposure to some of the local reporters.”
