The ballots are in, although the voting never officially ended. And it’s bad news for Greg Kelly, but worse news for WNYW.
Our FishbowlNY poll posted two weeks ago allowed readers and viewers to tell it to us straight–What do you think of Kelly as an evening anchor?
Presumably you know that Kelly started in July as Channel 5’s lead anchor. It was the final piece of a major swarm of activity that included Dave Price returning to WNYW as Good Day New York anchor, and Ernie Anastos being bounced from the 10 p.m. (He remains on the 5 p.m. with Dari Alexander).
By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, our respondents want Kelly back where he “belongs”: mornings. A whopping 45 percent of poll takers want the Kelly and Rosanna Scotto as a team again on Good Day. This month would have been their fourth anniversary as on-air “husband and wife.”
But those who responded to the poll were split on “Kelly After Dark,” as 24 percent chose, “He’s Great!” Another 20 percent clicked on the “Bring Back Ernie!” option. We’re not certain, though, how many of the 45 percent wanting Kelly switched to his original “home base” would in fact like Anastos to reclaim is previous 10 p.m. duties.
Now it’s time to take our poll about Dave Price, after the jump.
