Dave Price Turns Dancing With The Stars Interview into Awkward Good Day New York Segment

Good Day New York is busy wiping egg from its face following an unfortunately memorable segment.

One of Dancing With The Stars “professionals” was interviewed on WNYW’s Good Day New York yesterday morning. It started out decent enough with Maks Chmerkovskiy, who discussed his second stint with Kirstie Alley for the All-Stars version of the popular ABC show this fall.

It didn’t take long, however, for the interview to stray into the uncomfortable.

Meteorologist Audrey Puente (in for Mike Woods), a huge fan of the show and Chmerkovskiy, was invited to sit with co-anchors Dave Price and Rosanna Scotto as they spoke to the Dancing star.

Audrey, whose dad was the iconic Salsa performer Tito Puente, asked what was his favorite genre of music.

Price, then turned the proceedings downright awkward, “Audrey wanted to ask a question, have you ever made love to a weather woman before?” (See video clip after the jump)

TV Stations Go Wall-to-Wall for Irene Coverage All Weekend

As Hurricane Irene churned in the Atlantic with a bulls-eye at New York City’s back, TV stations went into non-stop coverage throughout the weekend.

The category-one storm made her first landfall early Saturday morning in Cape Lookout, North Carolina as stations began their wall-to-wall mode.

Accentuating the serious nature of the story, virtually every anchor was on the air.

WNYW’s Dari Alexander was one of the few anchors not seen during the weekend coverage. She was last seen by viewers on Friday night. Her 10 p.m. colleague Ernie Anastos (above, center) made his first appearance at 3 p.m. Sunday with co-anchor Christina Park, as the storm weakened significantly.

But Channel 5 did have its Good Day team, Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly, in place. However, much of Scotto’s screen time during the weekend was with WNYW’s newest memberSteve Lacy, and not her “TV husband” Kelly.

Kelly and Scotto were together Saturday, helping provide of the special moments.

TV Stations Get into ‘Irene’ Mode with Noon Newscast, Gov. Christie’s Remarks

As Hurricane Irene churns 1,000 miles away from the New York City, today’s noon newscasts on WCBS/Channel 2 and WABC/Channel 7 predictably emphasized the potential serious storm.

Both stations gave team coverage to preparations for Irene, which is expected to make landfall in the tri-state area Sunday.

On WABC, with anchors Lori Stokes, Ken Rosato, and meteorologist Amy Freeze (filling in for Bill Evans) tracked the now category three hurricane with the latest data.

The team coverage included reporters gathered throughout New York and New Jersey.

WCBS also dedicated a large chuck of their regular noon broadcast to Irene. Rob Morrison and Mary Calvi led the newscast with weather anchor John Elliott.

But, if you want to know how serious Irene may be for New York, just look no further than WNBC/Channel 4.

Welcome to the First ‘Barmash’ Awards for Best in Local News

There are a zillion different year-end countdowns and awards. Well, before too many days go by, here’s one more.

These are the “Barmash Awards” given for the best talent and newscasts in New York TV news. This is by a committee of one—me.

Best Newscast (early morning)

Today in New York (WNBC): Darlene Rodriguez and Michael Gargiulo, Chris Cimino (weather), and Megan Meany (traffic)

Despite only being together for a couple of years, this is well-oiled machine. They have a terrific balance of good personality and good news sense. The Rodriguez and Gargiulo anchor team took some time to establish their chemistry—but by 2010 became the gold standard for dawn patrol. Another important plus is Cimino, doing that shift for more than a decade. He is one the best forecasters, not just at the station, but could easily hold is own among the “prime timers” as well.

Many more “awards” after the jump.
