10 Years Later, WNYW’s Greg Kelly Reflects on His Time Embedded in Iraq

On the 10-year anniversary of the U.S. ground offensive in Iraq, “Good Day New York” co-host Greg Kelly reflected on his time as an embedded reporter during the war (video above).

Kelly — who was the first broadcast journalist to enter Baghdad with coalition forces — covered the war for Fox News Channel and sustained minor injuries when a mortar exploded near where he was standing.

“This was a wild, wild time. I never thought we would see what we actually got to see. If they were taking reporters in with them, there was no way were going to face real danger,” Kelly said on “Good Day” Tuesday. “And sure enough, it was like everything you would imagine war or an invasion to be. It was.”

Watch WNYW’s two segments on Kelly’s experience in Iraq here.

Seven months after leaving “Good Day New York” for a spot at the evening anchor desk, Greg Kelly made his return to the WNYW morning newscast Friday.

WNYW Shuffles Anchors: Greg Kelly Back to Mornings, Steve Lacy to Evenings

There are changes coming to the morning and evening newscasts at WNYW, the Fox O&O in New York City. Our sister site FishbowlNY scoops that Greg Kelly (left) will be back on “Good Day New York” beginning tomorrow.

Kelly moved to the evening newscasts, anchoring alongside Dari Alexander, in July. He was replaced on “Good Day” by Dave Price, who re-joined the station to anchor the morning show with Rosanna Scotto.

Price asked to be let out of his contract, station sources say. His last day at WNYW was Thursday.

“I had a great experience returning to FOX 5 but it is time to look for opportunities outside WNYW. I love Rosanna and the gang and wish them all the best,” Price told TVSpy in a statement.

“We appreciate all of Dave’s contributions to ‘Good Day New York’ during his time with FOX 5 and we wish him success in his future endeavors,” WNYW VP-GM Lew Leone said.

Kelly co-hosted “Good Day” with Scotto for four years before moving to the evenings.

“We are excited to welcome Greg back to ‘Good Day.’ He has proven he has the versatility to anchor a primetime newscast and an unscripted morning show – a rare and valuable quality,” Leone said. “This, combined with his fun, spontaneous, and inquisitive style make him the perfect fit for this role.”

As Kelly moves back to mornings, Steve Lacy (right) who currently anchors the 4:30 to 7 a.m. hours, will move to evenings. Lacy, who joined WNYW in 2011 from WCVB in Boston, will anchor the 10 p.m. newscast with Alexander and the 6 p.m. newscast solo.

A spokesperson for WNYW said Antwan Lewis will anchor the early-morning newscasts until Lacy’s permanent replacement is named.

>Update: Kelly’s last evening newscast will be the 6 p.m. tonight. Lacy will anchor the 10 p.m.

Beginning next Monday, Rosanna Scotto will have a new co-anchor on “Good Day New York”: Dave Price (left), a former WNYW weathercaster, is returning to the Fox O&O.

VIDEO: Cory Booker Responds to New York Post Report in a Tweet to WNYW’s Rosanna Scotto

The New York Post reported this morning that Newark mayor Cory Booker is on the outs with the Obama campaign after remarks he made on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last month. The article, which quotes an administration official saying Booker is “dead to us,” was morning show fodder today across the networks, including on WNYW‘s morning newscast with Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly.

Booker was apparently watching the Fox O&O, because he sent a direct message to Scotto clarifying the Post report. Scotto read Booker’s message on the air.

“Rosanna, running to a meeting. Those ‘unnamed source’ comments ring pretty hollow. I’m hosting an event with the President and First Lady,” Scotto read (video inside). Read more
