Morning routine: Father Albert Cutie



We caught up with Father Albert Cutié, a former Roman Catholic priest who is set to launch his own talk show, “Father Albert,” July 11 on FOX.

Q: What time is your alarm set for?

A: Between 6 and 6:30 a.m.

Q: Are you the pop-out-of-bed type?

A: Usually, I have no choice; I gotta drive my [teenage stepson] to school.

Q: Any morning rituals?

A: A time of quiet prayer, then some exercise, read the newspaper with a cup of coffee, and then my wife and I play with our 6-month-old daughter for a little while.

Q: Coffee? Papers?

A: USA Today and The New York Times, and always a black coffee — except during Lent, when I usually replace it with green tea or water.

Q: What time do you arrive at work?

A: Now that I live in Manhattan to film my new show, I wake up at 6:30, and I’m at the studio by 9 a.m. for a pre-production meeting with my executive producer.

Q: What’s your typical breakfast?

A: Two eggs over medium, with dry whole-wheat toast and a coffee.

Q: What’s your favorite guilty-pleasure breakfast?

A: Same thing, but add sausage, grits or a bran muffin.

Q: How do you unwind on weekend mornings?

A: I really love going out to breakfast with my wife and kids on Saturdays.
