Jodi Applegate to Fill-in as Host on WLNY’s The Couch

Jodi12The return of Jodi Applegate to local morning television awaits! Applegate, sitting on the TV sidelines since leaving WPIX late in 2012, will join The Couch for the week of September 9.

We may be seeing quite a bit of Applegate on the WLNY two-hour morning show. Co-host Lisa Kerney just gave birth to her second daughter and is on materity leave. Colleague Carolina Bermudez, who is in the last trimester of her pregnancy, will soon have her own time off.

Applegate, who had her first child earlier this year via gestational carrier, was co-host of WNYW/Channel 5’s Good Day New York from 2004 to 2008. But she is looking ahead to her Couch appearance.

“It’s a great show. Informative and fun to watch,” Applegate tells Tuned In. “I’m looking forward to hanging out on The Couch!”

Applegate is also gaining a presence on radio with fill-in hosting on WOR. She returns Friday with Jack Ford, with whom she co-anchored NBC”s Weekend Today in the 1990s, for the 10 a.m. to noon shift.

    Um, when a “gestational carrier” is involved, it cannot be said that Jodi “had” her first child. I guess she is now over the exhaustion of watching another woman give birth. Or the new “mommy” is just bored with her new doll.
