WNYW anchor Greg Kelly will return to the anchor desk on Friday, a Fox spokesperson tells TVSpy.
Kelly has been on a leave of absence from the Fox O&O since the Manhattan District Attorney’s office opened an investigation into rape allegations made against him on January 26. He was cleared of all charges last night.
Steve Lacy has been filling-in alongside Kelly’s co-anchor, Rosanna Scotto, on the morning newscast. In a statement released last night, Kelly thanked Scotto for her support.
“I will always remember her kindness, and I look forward to soon resuming my post on Good Day New York next to her,” he said.
