Pat’s more like it: In The Papers goes national

leave a comment »

To many New Yorkers getting ready for work, the New York One channel is as important as their early morning cup of coffee or that first cigarette. Sure, it mainly just broadcasts weather reports 24/7 but that’s part of its charm.

The best part of NY1 however is not the never-ending weather and traffic bulletins – it’s actually the morning “In the Papers” segment read by the caustic and loveable Pat Kiernan. So what if all he does is read out the best stories from the New York Times, Post and News? It saves us the trouble.

Now Kiernan has gone national with his new website PatsPapers.Com. Working with part-time editors in  New York and Europe and a producer in New York, he will publish an e-mail digest and a webcast during the downtime in his NY1 shift.
