Rosanna Scotto and Lori Stokes just completed their first ratings book as the new morning show team at Fox flagship WNYW’s Good Day New York, a 3-hour morning show that competes against the three network morning programs.

While they are one of the only all-women morning show anchor teams in the nation, they say being solid journalists is more important than gender. Scotto and Stokes came to the Adweek newsroom Thursday to talk about their two months on the air together, and about the rapid-fire changes in the morning show landscape in just the last two weeks, with the departures of the Today show’s Matt Lauer and CBS This Morning’s Charlie Rose.
