NEW YORK CITY — It was just over a year ago that former WSYR morning news anchor Alex Silverman announced he would be leaving WSYR after accepting a position at Seattle’s KIRO. Today, we’ve learned Silverman is headed back to the east coast — for a new job in New York City at WCBS Newsradio 880.
According to FishbowlNY, a portion of MediaBistro that focuses exclusively on the NYC market, Silverman will be joining WCBS as a part-time anchor and reporter.
Prior to — and concurrent with — his work at WSYR, Silverman was involved with WAER and WJPZ on the SU campus, eventually becoming President and GM of WJPZ.
On Twitter, Silverman, a New Jersey native, said he’ll be moving back to the NYC area tomorrow. WSYR morning show host Joe Galuski tweeted, “You’re going to WCBS? Great! I knew you could do it. You’re very good. Congrats!”
