29. Winner of Edward R. Murrow Award
I am pleased to present, here, one of the highlights of my years at WCBS -- the 2021 Edward R. Murrow Award winning best regional newscast recognized by The Radio Television Digital News Association. I was privileged to co-anchor this newscast, which was a true team effort.
Looking back on this broadcast from March 3, 2020, it’s clear that we’ve come a long way since then.
That day we reported on New York’s second confirmed case of coronavirus, in a lawyer from New Rochelle, NY. We reported that his family was self-quarantining, a new concept to all of us at that time. The U.S. death toll from the virus stood at 9 people. Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that a coronavirus vaccine would be months away.
The Dow would fall 786 points that day as the Fed cut interest rates 50 basis points to help the economy in the looming health crisis.
More than 1,300 Democratic delegates were at stake on that Super Tuesday, which would be the day that Joe Biden scored dramatic primary victories on his way to the presidential nomination.
