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. Read more

VIDEO: Cory Booker Responds to New York Post Report in a Tweet to WNYW’s Rosanna Scotto

The New York Post reported this morning that Newark mayor Cory Booker is on the outs with the Obama campaign after remarks he made on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last month. The article, which quotes an administration official saying Booker is “dead to us,” was morning show fodder today across the networks, including on WNYW‘s morning newscast with Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly.

Booker was apparently watching the Fox O&O, because he sent a direct message to Scotto clarifying the Post report. Scotto read Booker’s message on the air.

“Rosanna, running to a meeting. Those ‘unnamed source’ comments ring pretty hollow. I’m hosting an event with the President and First Lady,” Scotto read (video inside). Read more

VIDEO: Pauly Shore Invites WNYW Guest Host La La Anthony Back to His Hotel Room

Kelly and Anthony, who is the wife of the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony, interviewed Pauly Shore. Shore was promoting a movie that premieres this weekend, but somewhere in the middle of the interview, he abandoned all promotion tactics and focused in on Anthony instead (video above, at about the 5:00 mark).

“Are we gonna do P90X later? In my hotel room?” Shore asked Anthony as he carressed her arm. “So sweet. She’s adorable. Oh my God.” Read more

Greg Kelly to Return to WNYW Anchor Desk Friday

WNYW anchor Greg Kelly will return to the anchor desk on Friday, a Fox spokesperson tells TVSpy.

Kelly has been on a leave of absence from the Fox O&O since the Manhattan District Attorney’s office opened an investigation into rape allegations made against him on January 26. He was cleared of all charges last night.

Steve Lacy has been filling-in alongside Kelly’s co-anchor, Rosanna Scotto, on the morning newscast. In a statement released last night, Kelly thanked Scotto for her support.

“I will always remember her kindness, and I look forward to soon resuming my post on Good Day New York next to her,” he said.

WNYW’s Greg Kelly Cleared in Rape Investigation

An investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office has cleared WNYW anchor Greg Kelly of rape allegations made against him, according to the New York Daily News.

“We have concluded that the established facts do not constitute a crime under New York criminal law,” a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney said.

The investigation, which was opened last month, was handled by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office because Kelly is the son of New York police commissioner Ray Kelly.

The WNYW anchor, who took a leave of absence from the Fox O&O during the investigation, issued a statement Tuesday night.

“I am so thankful the investigation established what I’ve known all along, that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me,” Kelly said. “I am so blessed to have a wonderful family and friends whose support for me never wavered.” Read more

Watch WNYW’s Greg Kelly Rap During a Newscast

This morning Rosanna Scotto was delivering news about Heavy D‘s funeral, which is set for today in Mount Vernon, NY, when her WNYW co-anchor Greg Kelly suddenly started rapping.  Heavy D’s hit song “Now That We Found Love” was playing underneath Scotto when Kelly recognized it from a mixtape he had “back in 1992.”

Kelly was floored to learn that the deceased rapper was behind the song, which he apparently knows all the words to.  “This is a tribute to Heavy D!” Scotto was quick to clarify as Kelly used the desk for some air keyboard (video above).

The New York TimesBrian Stelter looks at the coverage of today’s Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City. The “Day of Action” includes plans to “gather at 16 central subway hubs and take our own stories to the trains,” which were a major topic of conversation this morning on WNYW:

“This is a big deal,” the Fox co-anchor Greg Kelly said as his newscast started at 7 a.m. Wednesday. “We have thousands of protesters that have indicated they are going to try to shut down the subway system as well, and occupy sixteen transit hubs across the five boroughs.” Mr. Kelly and his co-anchor, Rosanna Scotto, spoke of indications of a “shut down” plan three other times that hour.
