NYC Mayoral Candidate Anthony Weiner Tries His Hand at Weather on WNYW

During a sit down interview with New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner on New York’s FOX Owned station WNYW,  “Good Day New York” anchors Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto gave the former Congressman a shot at a new career.

When Scotto asked Weiner if he would continue in public service if he wasn’t elected Weiner jokingly said, “I’ve always had this dream of doing weather and sports on your show.” She then escorted Weiner over to the green screen and told him to keep his options open.

“First of all I’m not good-looking enough to do this job,” said the former Congressman who was disgraced in a sexting scandal in 2011. “This is where the Mets play,” Weiner continued. “They’re doing Double A baseball right now. I’ll be doing sports next.”

Scotto brought the interview back to seriousland by pressing the candidate on what his future held. Kelly then joined the two at the green screen where things got a little heated after Weiner told Scotto he would win the election because he was not like the other candidates who were from, “the same muck of municipal government we’ve had for years.” Kelly quickly pointed out Weiner came from the city council and then Congress telling the candidate, “It’s not exactly Athens.”

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.
