New York City stations devoted all resources this morning to coverage of the celebration parade for the New York Giants, who returned home yesterday after a big win in Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVI.

Rob Powers and Lori Stokes anchored WABC‘s coverage from City Hall. The pair were joined by 10 reporters along the parade route for “up-to-the-second excitement of this great parade,” Powers said.

WNYW-WWOR‘s coverage kicked off at 1o a.m. with Dari Alexander, Ernie Anastos and sports director Russ Salzberg anchoring outside City Hall. Steve Lacy, Jill Nicolini and John Huddy were along the parade route.

WCBS, WNBC and WPIX all started coverage at 11 p.m from City Hall. Maurice DuBois anchored for WCBS, and Jodi Applegate and Mario Diaz anchored for WPIX. Darlene Rodriguez, Bruce Beck and Michael Gargiulo anchored for WNBC.

“If you could bottle up all this energy and excitement … I don’t think you even can,” WNBC reporter Kathryn Craig told the trio of anchors.
