WNYW’s Greg Kelly Cleared in Rape Investigation

An investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office has cleared WNYW anchor Greg Kelly of rape allegations made against him, according to the New York Daily News.

“We have concluded that the established facts do not constitute a crime under New York criminal law,” a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney said.

The investigation, which was opened last month, was handled by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office because Kelly is the son of New York police commissioner Ray Kelly.

The WNYW anchor, who took a leave of absence from the Fox O&O during the investigation, issued a statement Tuesday night.

“I am so thankful the investigation established what I’ve known all along, that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me,” Kelly said. “I am so blessed to have a wonderful family and friends whose support for me never wavered.” Read more

WNBC Edits I-Team Promo After Rival Stations Complain

Just one day after premiering a new station promo, New York’s WNBC has edited the spot to eliminate the portions featuring New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly.

The New York Daily News reports rival stations were “shocked when they first saw the spot,” which premiered during the Super Bowl on WNBC. It features a scene of Kelly walking alongside correspondent Jonathan Dienst (pictured).

A spokesperson for the NYPD, Paul Browne, told the Daily News that the police department requested the edits after receiving a complaint from WCBS, the CBS O&O. The complaint from WCBS reportedly called Kelly’s appearance in the ad “outrageous” and said it suggested favoritism. Read more

NYC Stations Among Media Coalition Protesting NYPD’s Treatment of Reporters

A coalition of media organizations — including WABC, WNBC and WCBS — sent a letter yesterday to the New York Police Department protesting recent media access issues and police handling of reporters.

In November, the New York Press Club sent a letter to city officials protesting treatment of journalists during the Occupy Wall Street raid. In response, police commissioner Ray Kelly told officers that they could be disciplined for disrupting media access, according to the Washington Post. But journalists in New York City say that there continues to be interference while they work.

“A number of press entities feel that more needs to be done if we are to resolve these issues in an amicable manner,” the media letter said, according to the Post. Read more

Report: Woman Accusing Greg Kelly of Rape Says Alleged Attack Resulted in a Pregnancy

The woman accusing Greg Kelly of rape has told police her sexual encounter with the WNYW anchor resulted in a pregnancy, which she subsequently aborted, according to the New York Post.

The woman filed an official complaint Tuesday night. Because Kelly is the son of New York police commissioner Ray Kelly, the investigation is being handled by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Through his attorney, Kelly has released a statement strongly denying the woman’s claim.

Kelly anchors the morning newscast on WNYW, the Fox O&O in New York City. He has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the station.

Rival Stations Report on Rape Accusation Against WNYW Anchor Greg Kelly

In New York City, news of rape accusations against Greg Kelly, the morning show anchor at Fox O&O WNYW, broke this morning.

Two of WNYW’s rival stations, ABC O&O WABC and CBS O&O WCBS, reported the Kelly news this morning. WABC’s Josh Einiger reported live from NYPD headquarters in lower Manhattan, where Kelly’s father, Ray Kelly, is the police commissioner. Read more

WNYW Anchor Greg Kelly Accused of Rape

New Yorkers are used to seeing Greg Kelly in the morning, as he anchors WNYW‘s a.m. newscast.  But Kelly is appearing this morning in an unlikely place: on the cover of the New York Post.

Kelly is currently under investigation for raping a young woman in lower Manhattan last October.  He is the son of New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly so the investigation has been turned over to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

“KELLY SON IN SEX PROBE,” declares today’s Post, along with a photo of the WNYW anchor.

The Fox O&O reported on the investigation during its morning show today, with early morning anchor Steve Lacy filling in for Kelly. Read more

WNYW’s Greg Kelly Interviews NYC Police Commissioner (His Dad) About Terror Arrest

WNYW had New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly in the studio this morning for an exclusive interview about the weekend arrest of a terror suspect who allegedly plotted to detonate bombs throughout the city.

The interview meant that WNYW morning anchor Greg Kelly would be questioning someone he’s been answering to his whole life: his dad.

At the end of the nearly nine-minute long interview–which included some terse answers from the police commissioner to his son’s questions–the younger Kelly awkwardly mentioned their connection.  Video inside… Read more

NY Press Club Calls For Investigation Into NYPD’s Treatment of Journalists During Zuccotti Park Raid

The New York Press Club Foundation is calling for an investigation into the reported police aggression against journalists covering the NYPD’s early morning raid of Zuccotti Park.

“As police officers acted to remove Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park, several reporters protested that they were the victims of harassment and that their rights under the First Amendment were violated,” wrote Gabe Pressman, longtime WNBC reporter and president of the New York Press Club Foundation, in a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“The actions of some police officers were not consistent with the long-established relationship between the NYPD and the press,” Pressman added. Read more

NYPD Creates Media-Free Bubble Around Zuccotti Park During Occupy Raid

As the NYPD removed Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park early Tuesday morning, they effectively created a media-free bubble around the action, pushing reporters out of view and clearing the airspace of news helicopters.

While there were plenty of reports of police aggression against demonstrators, as well as members of the media, many journalists were unable to provide first-hand accounts of the clashes because they were so far away.

“Reporters were unable to independently verify reports of police aggression inside the park at a certain point because police had pushed the media so far back,” WNBC’s Chris Glorioso told viewers this morning after covering the early morning raid. Read more

’60 Minutes’ NYPD Shoot-down Report is News in New York

“60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley reported on the NYPD’s counter-terrorism bureau last night in a profile of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly — whose son, Greg Kelly is the anchor of “Good Day New York.” The news from the “60 Minutes” piece: that the NYPD has the capability to take down a plane if it need be. All the local stations, as well as the network morning newscasts, reported the news this morning. Fox5′s “Good Day New York” only made faint mention of the father-son relationship:

Greg Kelly: We learned last night that the NYPD has the capability to shoot down an aircraft.

Rosanna Scotto: I had no idea. Did you?

Greg Kelly: I did not. I found out on “60 minutes” just like everyone else.

In a later segment, Kelly said he didn’t even make it home it time to watch his dad on “60 Minutes.” “I pulled over at a beauty parlor, I was so anxious to see this thing,” said Kelly. “I had to ask, ‘Could I see your TV?’ I was not going to be home at 7:00.”
