WPIX News Director Plans for More Commentary, Viewer Interaction

“We are very encouraged that New York is open to a different news presentation and we’re feeling good about the overall reception that we’ve gotten,” WPIX news director Bill Carey said recently about the CW-affiliate’s 10 p.m. newscast, which underwent a major overhaul last October.

In an interview with TVSpy sister site FishbowlNY, Carey said that the revamped 10 p.m. newscast, which features Jodi Applegate (right) anchoring solo without a desk, is part of a broader goal to establish the Tribune-owned station as a place where viewers can find a fresh take on news stories while also interacting with the news team.

Carey says that WPIX plans to offer more commentary/opinion in the coming months and open things up to viewers.

“We’re really going our own way. People may like it, they may not like,” Carey told FishbowlNY, but “they’re all talking about it.” Read more at FishbowlNY
