WNYW News Director Emails Dave Price During Morning Newscast: ‘Fix Your Hair’

Dave Price was sitting at the “Good Day New York” anchor desk this morning when he got an email from WNYW news director Dianne Doctor he decided to share with co-host Rosanna Scotto and their viewers:

Price: Hold on, I just got an email from the news director.

Scotto: What did she say?

Price: Fix your hair.

Rosanna: So how did you respond?

Price: I can’t tell you how I responded. I mean, fix my hair? Would you stop already with the fix my hair? Here’s the deal. This is the hair I was born with, this is the hair I’ve had on television for the past 15 years. And this woman is obsessed with my hair … Do I walk into her office and tell her to fix her hair? No. I’d be suspended.

Scotto: OK. Let’s move along, shall we?

Scotto encouraged viewers to visit the “Good Day New York” Facebook page and share thoughts on Price’s hair.

“How is Dave supposed to fix his hair? There’s only so much he could do…” wrote one viewer.

“Dave, leave your hair alone!” another viewer wrote. “I think tomorrow out of spite you should just roll out of bed and not comb your hair at all.”
