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.
