WCBS/2 and WLNY/55 have their new morning show hosts lined up - Carolina Bermudez, John Elliott and Lisa Kerney; Elliott is the veteran morning weatherman at Ch. 2 while Kerney joined in February as morning sports anchor. Bermudez: cohost of Z100's “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.” The 7-9 a.m. news/infotainment program has a name too: "Live from the Couch." No launch date yet, but expect "early July."
“We are very excited to be bringing a distinctive new morning show to the tri-state area featuring Carolina, John and Lisa – three extremely bright and entertaining broadcasters,” said Betty Ellen Berlamino, Vice President and Station Manager, WLNY-TV. “With the launch of LIVE FROM THE COUCH in the morning and our new one-hour primetime newscast, WLNY NEWS AT 9 P.M., next month we look forward to significantly raising the profile of WLNY.”
