WNYW’s Greg Kelly Fawns and Flirts With Reporter in Bikini

GilliganGreg Kelly is getting lambasted online about his inappropriate behavior on a recent episode of WNYW’s Good Day New York. Despite his borderline awkward exchange with a bikini clad Anna Gilligan, the blame falls directly at station management’s feet.

Like him or not, Kelly was just being Kelly. We’ve seen these moments before; sometimes they appear contrived when his on-air mom Rosanna Scotto has to reign him in, if not scold him. This was one of those times.

Of course, Kelly isn’t six years old and should know the difference between a good boy and being a problem child.

Gilligan, the Good Day entertainment reporter, was live from Action Park for its reopening. She disrobed to show off her body as she took a swing across the new Tarzan ride.

Good Day Hosts Mulling Election Campaign

WNYW130812070159Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto weren’t just reporting about the election season today. The anchor team is looking to parlay their popularity into a possible run for political office. Kelly and Scotto told Good Day New York viewers about the stunt at the start of today’s show, as they debuted modest campaign signs with their names.

“We’re very close to announcing our candidacies for citywide office,” Kelly said on the WNYW show.

That office wasn’t disclosed, if Kelly and Scotto have even made that determination.

Kelly pointed out that with enough signatures on a petition they could be on the ballot as Independents by August 20.

“We have no agenda yet,” Kelly said.

“Do we have a platform?” Scotto questioned.

“We’ll get to that,” he joked.

They spent a chunk of the “more-relaxed” 9 a.m. portion trying to woo voters on the street, and even guests, to sign their petition.

Scotto suggested going for the “whole gusto” and a run for Mayor.

“That opens us up to all kinds of charges and investigations,” Kelly warned.

He recommended an office that “nobody really cares about.” Asked by Scotto which one, he replied, “You name it. There are plenty to choose from.”

Kelly and Scotto were planning to meet people at a subway station today to gauge interest.

Did the latest round of musical anchor chairs prove successful for WNYW?

Now that Steve Lacy has been the station’s lead anchor for three months, Tuned In explores if the changeover worked.

Just to get readers caught up, Lacy assumed the anchor duties at 6 and 10 p.m. on January 25, while the Greg Kelly nighttime experiment ended abruptly seven months after it started. Kelly is back with his Good Day cohort Rosanna Scotto, while Lacy is now teamed with Dari Alexander for the Channel 5 late newscast.

“[Lacy] was really surprised that he got brought to nights,” a source close to the situation tells Tuned In.

Because of good rapport with former Good Day Wake Up/First Edition co-anchor Juliet Huddy, the source says it was a “bittersweet” move from mornings.

“But, overall it’s worked out,” the source says, “because he’s a solid guy.”

Whenever Lacy broadcasts, the source says, he gets along well with all colleagues.

“He’s known as somebody who is easy to work with.”
