Ernie Anastos Moves Off WNYW Late News
Greg Kelly takes over 6 and 10 p.m., while Dave Price pegged for 'Good Day'...again

Ernie Anastos, a fixture in New York news, is moving off WNYW New York's 10 p.m. newscast, but will remain on the 5 p.m. show. Greg Kelly moves from Good Day New York co-anchor to anchor of the 6 p.m. broadcast, and co-anchor, with Dari Alexander, of the 10 p.m.
Starting July 2, Dave Price, recently serving as weather anchor and features reporter on the CBS Early Show, comes on board to co-anchor the morning show with Rosanna Scotto.
Price did weather for Good Day New York from 1999-2003.
WNYW is owned by Fox. Fox did not give a clear reason why Anastos is moving off the 10 p.m. newscast, but a Fox Television Stations spokesperson said he would have more time to focus on his "Positively Ernie" specials, which spotlight upbeat news in DMA No. 1.
"Dave Price is an extremely talented and experienced morning news personality," said Lew Leone, VP and GM of WNYW. "The moment he became available it was clear to me that he would be a great addition to our team. The Good Day New York viewers will appreciate his charm, sense of humor and intelligence as they start their day with Fox 5."
You can never replace the chemistry that exists between Roseanne and Greg Kelly. The show is NOT the same!!! What were you thinking??

IT WAS POOR JUDGEMENT TO SWITCH GREG KELLY TO THE EVENING NEWS. ROSEANA SCOTTO AND GREG KELLY MADE MY DAY. I NO LONGER WATCH THE AM SHOW. THEY WERE SUCH A PERFECT MATCH. SORRY BUT THE SHOW IS NOT THE SAME. I AM SURE YOUR RATINGS WILL GO DOWN.

Terrible decision. Put Ernie back at 10pm and Greg back on the morning show. It was entertaining to watch him and Rosanna in the morning together, it's not the same. Really poor planning and I believe it will be regretted.

This change is horrible. Bring back Ernie to the 6 & 10 news.
He brought professionalism and class your newscast If not your ratings will go down without a doubt.

never, ever should have broken up the Greg & Rosanna team - they should get rid of Heather Nauert - she's awful & always has her foot in her big mouth.
