NY1 Anchor, Reporter Featured on Beastie Boys Musician’s Guitar Strap

Guitar Center Presents The 6th Annual Little Kids Rock BenefitPerhaps Pat Kiernan put it best: “never predicted this.” Who could have? But now we know. Kiernan, anchor at New York City’s NY1, can point to the most unique example of his street cred: his face is featured in Beastie Boys’ guitarist Adam Horovitz‘s guitar strap. Yes way.

Horovitz’s wife, Kathleen Hanna tweeted a photo of the guitar strap’s detail, with images of the iconic NY1 logo, and photos of Kiernan and NY1 reporter Roger Clark. Gothamist has reaction from both men about their place in music history:

Clark—a seasoned drummer and air guitarist—tells us, “I am really honored that an artist and musician like Adam Horovitz, who I have admired for years, would pay tribute to NY1 and Pat and I in such a cool way. Anyone who knows me can tell you how much the music of the Beastie Boys was a part of my life since they first came on the scene. Plus the fact that Adam’s wife Kathleen Hanna tweeted about the guitar strap is amazing. She is another one of my all time favorites from Bikini Kill to Le Tigre and now The Julie Ruin. I saw them perform a Joan Jett song together at the Little Kids Rock Benefit last Thursday night at Hammerstein Ballroom and it was amazing.”

Kiernan, however, is wondering what’s next: “I knew Ad-Rock to be a regular viewer and a fan, but this is a level of loyalty that troubles me. Will Roger feel obligated to use Ad-Rock mittens on the air this winter? Will I feel compelled to design an Ad-Rock elastic band to wrap around my newspapers? This is a slippery slope.”

Roma Torre Returns to NY1 Anchor Desk

ENLARGE_01__Torre_Roma-534x300NY1 anchor Roma Torre returns to the anchor desk today, five weeks after colon cancer surgery. “All through September when I met viewers on the street they asked about Roma. You don’t think of NY1 without thinking of her,” NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan told Capital New York. “So we’re all ecstatic that she’s coming back to sit in her usual chair.” Torre announced her cancer diagnosis back in August and took leave for treatment. She updated viewers with a tweet upon her return from the hospital: Read more

A Day in the Life of NY1′s Pat Kiernan

Business Insider takes a look at a day in the life of Pat Kiernan, who has anchored the morning newscast on Time Warner Cable News NY1 since 1997. His day begins shortly after 3 a.m. and doesn’t end until around 6 p.m.:

NY1 Will Be Rebranded as ‘Time Warner Cable News NY1′

TWC News NY1 logoNY1, Time Warner Cable’s 24-hour newschannel in New York City, is getting a new name and a new look. The network will be rebranded as “Time Warner Cable News NY1″ before the end of the year, Capital New York’s Alex Weprin reports:

In March, TWC acknowledged that it was considering changing the name of the station. The reason for the change? Not enough subscribers realized that it was exclusive to the provider. At the time executives stressed that they were trying to figure out a way to retain the “NY1” name while making it clear it was a TWC property.

Butthe headline on Gothamist’s pick-up of the story summed up many viewers’ reactions nicely: “NY1 To Be Rebranded As ‘TWC News’ Because We Can’t Have Nice Things.” According to anchor Pat Kiernan, that reaction influenced the rebranding process.

“The company really took notice after New Yorkers questioned the wisdom of a rebrand,” he wrote in an email to Capital. “We’re getting a makeover in a few weeks that adds a Time Warner Cable logo, but the branding is still unmistakably New York 1. That’s what we’ll call it and that’s still the name in the corner of the screen.”

For a promotional video of the channel’s new look, head on over to Capital New York.

WATCH: New York Reporter Rocks Out to ‘Rush’ in Morning Live Shot



Roger Clark
, a reporter for New York’s NY1, was reporting live about the upcoming Northeast Semi-Finals for the US Air Guitar Championships. Nat Hays, GM of US Air Guitar, told Clark, “Our mission, every year, is to find the best air guitarist in America to represent our country in the World Championships in Finland.”

After one of the competitors, Mitt Umlaut (probably not his real name) gave viewers a taste of what real air guitar looked like, Clark got in on the act. His song of choice? “Tom Sawyer” by everybody’s favorite cerebral rock band Rush. Watch the video and don’t forget your lighter.

“It was very, uh, very legitimate looking,” said morning anchor Pat Kiernan after it was all over.

NY1′s Pat Kiernan Gets Another ‘Live!’ Audition

NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan is getting another shot at his dream job co-hosting “LIVE!” with Kelly Ripa.

“LIVE!” is auditioning a rotation of comedians, actors and television hosts to fill the seat of Regis Philbin, who retired from the show in November. Kiernan, who co-hosted once in March, is slated for two more days alongside Ripa — April 30 and May 1.

“There are so many factors in a decision like this that it’s tough to analyze what they’re looking for. So I’m trying not to analyze,” Kiernan told our sister site FishbowlNY. “As with last time, I’ll bring the slightly cheerier version of my NY1 self and they’ll let me know if it’s the right fit for Kelly.”
