Dave Price Named Morning Anchor at WNYW; Greg Kelly Shifts to Evenings

Beginning next Monday, Rosanna Scotto will have a new co-anchor on “Good Day New York”: Dave Price (left), a former WNYW weathercaster, is returning to the Fox O&O.

Price’s hire sets a cascade of changes to WNYW’s newscasts into motion. Greg Kelly (right), Scotto’s current co-anchor, will move to evenings, anchoring the 6 p.m. newscast solo and 10 p.m. newscast with Dari Alexander. Kelly replaces Ernie Anastos at 10 p.m. and Harry Martin at 6 p.m.

Anastos’ time at the anchor desk will be reduced, although the station will add more “Positively Ernie” specials to its lineup beginning later this year. He will remain in his current role on the 5 p.m. newscast. Martin will continue as an anchor on WNYW sister station WWOR, and will focus on political reporting ahead of the election, a WNYW spokesperson tells TVSpy.

Price served as the weathercaster on “Good Day New York” from 1999-03. Most recently, he worked for CBS News, where he was a weather anchor and features reporter on “The Early Show” and a weather anchor for WCBS.

“Dave Price is an extremely talented and experienced morning news personality. The moment he became available it was clear to me that he would be a great addition to our team,” WNYW VP-GM Lew Leone said in a statement. “The ‘Good Day New York’ viewers will appreciate his charm, sense of humor and intelligence as they start their day with FOX 5.”
