Eliot Spitzer Joins NY1’s Inside City Hall as ‘Wiseguy’

Since Eliot Spitzer had the “governor” dropped from his name, he’s made waves in broadcasting. His latest move in that path, Spitzer has been added to NY1’s political coverage. He began as a guest-host on MSNBC, before getting his own short-lived show on CNN, and in March got his own show on Current TV. And now he’s adding NY1’s Inside City Hall where he’ll be one of the program’s three “Wiseguys” along with former Mayor Ed Koch and former Senator Alfonse D’amato.

“I am delighted to be joining two of New York’s sharpest political minds to discuss the important issues of the day,” Spitzer says.

The trio will explore the biggest political issues beginning next week.

“Former Governor Eliot Spitzer is one of the smartest people I know,” Koch says. “His joining Wiseguys broadens its political insights. Welcome aboard, Eliot,” said Koch.

“Eliot will certainly add some spark to the Wiseguys. Look for more fireworks!” said D’Amato.

Spitzer was born and raised in the Bronx and is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

NY1’s Inside City Hall, hosted by Errol Louis, is telecast from 7 to 8 weeknights with a replay at 10pm.
