WNYW New York Anchor Dave Price Leaving
Dave Price, morning anchor at Fox O&O WNYW New York (DMA 1), is leaving the station. He will be succeeded on Good Day New York by Greg Kelly, who moves from the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts beginning Jan. 25.
A station insider said Price came to station management asking to be let out of his contract. Contrary to an erroneous earlier report, Price never discussed moving to an earlier newscast.
Lew Leone, WNYW VP-GM, said in a statement: “We appreciate all of Dave’s contributions to Good Day New York during his time with Fox 5 and we wish him success in his future endeavors.” Leone added: “We are excited to welcome Greg back to Good Day. He has proven he has the versatility to anchor a primetime newscast and an unscripted morning show – a rare and valuable quality. This, combined with his fun, spontaneous and inquisitive style make him the perfect fit for this role.”
Price said: “I had a great experience returning to Fox 5 but it is time to look for opportunities outside WNYW. I love [co-host] Rosanna [Scotto] and the gang and wish them all the best.”
