Talk about under the radar.

Longtime WNYW/Channel 5 reporter Andrea Day, who left the station in 2011, is now handling the “crime and punishment” beat for CNBC.

Day, who joined WNYW in 1997, resurfaced recently freelancing for the financial network. Her stories are an apparent attempt by CNBC to capitalize on its popular American Greed prime time series.

Not all prime time shows, however, are doing as well on the cable network.

NY1’s Pat Kiernan hosts Crowd Rules. Its debut last week, Tuned In has learned, got awful numbers. Among the household ratings for the 9 p.m. hour, it got a 47. By contrast, American Greed typically notches a 100 household rating.

Tuned In attempted to reach CNBC and Day for an interview.
