I prefer it over all other new channels. Son quintessentially New York and some how soothing to watch.\
Greg Kiernan is almost robotic in his delivery, but he''s grown on me. I''m told he has his own website.\
(and who can beat "Weather on the 1''s"?
His name is Pat Kiernan and I don''t think he''s robotic - I think he has a really, really dry wit and I love it.
Oh good, more NY-centric posts. Life in NY is so very...fascinating.
Every morning Pat Kiernan''s bare arms hang out of his suit jacket with shiny expandable watch band shining in our faces. Mustn''t be able to afford a long-sleeved shirt at $200,000 a year.
Roma Torre always looks like she''s on her period.\
Pat Kiernan is from Canada. He''s such a moron. One day he was complaining about his terrace. Nice way to let everyone know you''re richer than your audience.
I''m told he''s not even breaking even with his site and is considering whether to dismantle it or not.
Pat Kiernan is the President of my co-op board and lives in the penthouse of our building on the UWS with his wife and 2 small children (under 7).\
When he moved in, he bought both penthouses, combined them and renovated them. Then, once he was elected Board President, he insisted the entire building upgrade its electric system (which we as tenants would each have to pay for - an assessment on top of our monthly maintenance charges) so he could have an air conditioner in every room.\
Needless to say, he is not popular in the building, and when his term expires this spring, he will not be re-elected. ANYBODY but Pat.
Susan Jhun, who''s married to Tech Guy Adam Balkin, has a sing song delivery and drags out the last word in every sentence. Still there thanks to EEO quotas.
His site should close down. The same news stories you can find in other multiple places.
The only thing I really like is the "In the Papers" segment in the morning. %0D\
Maybe R6 can answer a question I have about Pat. Is that his own hair?%0D
[quote]Son quintessentially New York and some how soothing to watch.%0D\
And you New Yorkers make fun of southerners'' education. %0D\
OH MY! OH MY!%0D
R6, I can''t imagine NY1 pays well. It must be a hobby for him. How can he afford his lifestyle?
I believe NY1 was transmitted throughout the country in the weeks following 9/11. Can anyone confirm?
R2, how''s the weather in Akron?
I have SUCH a crush on Adam Balkin''s asymmetrical eyebrows!!!
I just KNOW he''a a hairy one...
It is less slick than the local network affiliates, and less sensationalistic, too. So it''s my go to for local TV news.
Especially love ON STAGE. Want to do all kinds of nasty, sexual things to Frank Dilella.
Frank is a cutie, all right, if not quite enough to make me forget Paul Lombardi. (WEHT?)
Twice recently Frank said rih-PRIZING.%0D\
If anyone here knows Frank ask him to check a dictionary. The preferred pronunciation is rih-PREEZING,from reprise (rih-PREEZ).
NY 1 has more screen freezes, pixels and audio drop outs of all stations on their system.
I find their theme music so soothing. I also like how they give the guy credits on who composed the music, which I think is rare for a new station.
Vest-pocket Lombardi moved out to Los Angeles about 5 years ago.
Last I knew NY1 was non-union. Street reporters start around $35,000. They have to carry the camera, set it up, and hope no one runs off with it while they do the stand-up. It''s happened more than once.
[quote] I can''t imagine NY1 pays well. It must be a hobby for him. How can he afford his lifestyle?\
Someone told me that their friend works for NY1 and makes a decent salary. I can''t imagine it has a ton of overhead.
I work in Chelsea Market, where they film, so I see all their anchors walking through the building all the time. Pat is pretty cute.
r24, NY1 doesn''t "film" anything. They use digital recording, which is sometimes referred to as tape. The use of celluloid film is the news business was passe twenty years ago.
We''ll all know John Schimo''s gay, despite his denial.
Schiumo''s from Great Kills, Staten Island, home of the Down-low guidos... It''s always amusing to see the male grooming that goes on during one''s ascension at NY1. Schiumo''s had it, Balkin, and yet Roger Clark is still disarmingly schlubby, tongue-tied, and all but spits and foams when he talks on camera.
I''m in love!
So is Schiumo really gay? I think he''s hot.
Mr. On Stage, Frank Dilella, had an affair with DL fave and open marriage advocate Cheyenne Jackson.\
Yeah, that''s a real class act theater reporter there.\
He''s a regular John Gassner.
I have cablevision here in Brooklyn. NY1 used to be on channel 1 but recently move to channel 8. Does any one know why? Just curious.
Interesting, R29. Did Cheyenne''s partner find out about it?
Yes, that''s Pat''s real hair.\
I don''t know what his salary is, but he bought the penthouses just when the building was going co-op about 10 years ago, so he probably got them fairly cheaply.\
Personally, I prefer the darker, Italian reporters they have: Rocco Vertucci and Joe Malvasio, and despite the fact that his face looks like he''s been in too many boxing matches, the adorable Bobby Cuza.
OP writes like she just suffered a stroke.
[R2] do you bash all the personal stories that are more "local" than any New York story?\
All the stories about crimes, weather, and other posts about life outside of New York?\
Since when is DL only for posts that everyone can relate to geographically?\
You do know how to skip these New York posts don''t you?\
Oh no, you don''t.
Bashing DL NY''ers is the lifelood of the flyovers.
R17 and R21 - Paul Lombardi moved back and is now selling real estate.
r30, you''re lucky having NY1 and News12. In Manhattan we''re stuck with NY 1. They''re lousy when it comes to "Breaking News." It takes them three hours to cover an important event.
R30, it is rumored that Cablevision will be using channel 1 for its new remote storage DVR service. \
R38, I think NY1 is way ahead of Bronx/Brooklyn News 12 when it comes to breaking news. Of course, News 12 does cover some stories that NY1 and the other local news outlets do not.
Besides DiLello, is anyone at NY1 gay - and OUT?%0D\
Is Bobby Cuza gay?
I always thought Pat was cute. But when he dressed as Gomez Addams for the Halloween Parade coverage, he looked kinda hot. The dark slicked-back hair made his blue eyes pop. I wish I could find a decent screen capture.
THE HOTTEST reporter on NY1 is Mark Kottler. Loves me that little Jew boy.
At r36s Halstead link, it mentions that Paul Lombari is a tutor at Covenant House. His specialty must be must be teaching kids to develop a gay voice.
From 2005 New York Magazine: Pat Kiernan, %0D\
$200,000, Anchor, NY1. Chuck Scarborough, $3 million, Sue Simmons $2.5 million. Must''ve all had raises over the last five years. %0D\
I''ve a huge crush on Roger Clark- a definite Irish bear. Anyone know anything of his personal life?
Well, Herb, if he is indeed from Staten Island, he''s about two beers away from a Kinsey 6...
I thought Roger Clark was from Queens. Recall something about losing weight for his girlfriend.
R2 here - it sure is easy to get you defensive NY bitches in a tizzy - and you immediately lead with "you''re in a flyover state." Face it, it is a vile, dirty city full of self-important, manic assholes who don''t know how to relax. Good luck with that snow tonight bitches.\
Oh and by the way, I live on Maui.
"Is Bobby Cuza gay?"\
No. He posts quite a bit on Craigslist looking for women. He likes to smoke pot and have sex with women.
Cuza has a terrible lateral emission, like former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Any truth to the rumor that Pat Kiernan is a crossdresser?
Doesn''t Pat Kiernan also work for a financial network as well. I seem to remember reading a profile that said he rushed out of NY1 to an afternoon show on another network
When Pat makes only $200,000+ the poor bo definitely needs a part-time job. He should head back home and work for CBC.
Roger Clark lives in Astoria.\
I see him at the Steinway Street station all the time.
More about Cheyenne and Frank''s affair, please. Who on earth was the top in that pairing??
R48 is a fat poi eater.
from a fan facebook page:\
Born in the Bronx and raised in Queens and Staten Island, Roger took an extended leave from his hometown in the 1990s to work at a series of radio and TV stations in towns like Oneonta, Newburgh, White Plains and Poughkeepsie. \
I''m a regular ''enry ''iggins and can spot a Sta-en Oil-lin accent a mile away...
Paul Lombardi is back on TV here in NYC!! He's hosting PBS pledge breaks on WLIW Channel 21. He interviewed Elaine Stritch on a pledge break for a PBS Oscar Hammerstein documentary. And yes, he is still hot!
The sight of Roger Clark on the screen, makes me reach for the remote so fast, I think I broke the sound barrier. Is he brain damaged, dropped on his head at birth? Looks like he smells mildewy.
Also hate the blond on weekend mornings too. Voice like nails on a blackboard.
Love, love, Weather on the 1s and In the Papers,
r60 the blonde (note correct spelling for a female) is Kristen Shaughnessy.
I've worked on a feature film crew twice at NY1 and twice Pat Kiernan has wandered over to our craft services table several times to eat our food. We wanted to walk up to him and say, "Dude, don't you make a decent living? Enough with the mooching."
Pat sold his UWS apt and moved to a shitty looking house in brooklyn.
NY1 is known to be cheap, the cheapest in NY, in terms of pay, but many reporters start out there and move on to other networks.
The one person i absolutely can't stand is Lewis Dodley. He sounds like he's mumbling and can't pronounce the words properly, i switch channels the second he's on.
I love "in the papers" as well and also "the call" at night. John Shumo (don't know how he spells it) just had a baby boy. John also teaches at a local college if i remember correct from reading his bio a while back.
Who cares that orange and blue are the city's official colors, they're drab compared to other stations and Cablevision's News 12.
r63, I also like "In the Papers" and "The Call," though it's best when staffers fill-in for Schiumo.
Maria, a face for radio, should stick to her weekday DJ job. "Road to City Hall" is good, especially on Wednesday when Herson Barrero (sp?) and Curtis Sliwa debate ten subjects in ten minutes.
Did John Schiumo give the name of his son? His father was John. Father died a month before John got married in 2012.
John Schiumo is the best Call person around. He's calm, reassuring, smart, and has a good sense of humor. He knows exactly how to get rid of a nuisance caller without being rude. Maria, on the other hand, is frenzied and comes across as mean and impatient. She's kinda scary. It's a tough hosting job, but give John props for being first-rate.
