Greg Kelly is leaving early mornings behind and is moving to the nighttime slot on Monday, WNYW Fox 5 announced Thursday. The move comes as the station shuffles around its news personalities to make room for Dave Price, the former CBS weatherman who worked for Fox from 1999 to 2003, according to Lew Leone, the station's vice president and general manager.
The "Good Day New York" co-anchor will be the sole anchor at 6 p.m. "Dave Price is an extremely talented and experienced morning news personality," Leone said in a statement.
But if she thought the hardest part of her broadcast was going on one of the rides and then swimming live on TV, she was wrong.
After getting out of the water, a self-conscious Gilligan, who admitted it was "scary" that she had to strip to a two-piece on air, was subjected to some awkward comments from Kelly.
When local Fox reporter Anna Gilligan went to New Jersey’s Action Park to try out the new Tarzan rope swing, she got more than she bargained for in the form of some inappropriate comments from anchor Greg Kelly.
“I don’t know which is scarier, the ride of taking off my clothes,” Gilligan said before taking the plunge.
He does not heed the advice and continues with his cringey remarks.
When Gilligan says she is about to go and put some clothes on, Kelly tells her "Hold on a second, no, not so fast Anna." He then stutters to find a question to keep the presenter on air and receives another telling off from Scotto who even slaps him on the arm and tells him to "be nice and stop milking this shot." Even then, he does not pick up on the clues and continues with the awkwardness.
In the late 1990s, Kelly was an anchor for the morning news program at ABC affiliate WIVT-TV in Binghamton, New York, where he secured an exclusive interview with then U. He received a minor shrapnel wound to the face when a mortar round exploded near him while crossing the Euphrates River with the 3rd Infantry Division on March 31, 2003. Information Minister Muhammad Said al-Sahhaf, a.k.a. Baghdad Bob, was shown at one of his press conferences saying that Coalition forces were not in Baghdad, Fox News was showing, in split screen, reporter Kelly riding a tank through the city. While attending Fordham, Kelly worked at WFUV as an on-air reporter.While on duty Kelly successfully amassed over 158 aircraft carrier landings and flew over Iraq in Operation Southern Watch, enforcing the United Nations imposed No-Fly Zone.Scotto grew up in an Italian-American family in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, New York.The camera operator even gets involved by sparing Gilligan's blushed and cutting to a shot of the pool rather than the presenter in her two-piece.When it goes back to the Fox 5 studio, a suitably embarrassed Kelly tells Scotto, "don't be so frowning at me." Former Marine Kelly, the son of NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly, was cleared of a rape allegation back in 2012 and thanked Scotto then for her support.
