Some New York news shows back, but many hosts work remotely
Monday represented a key phase in New York City's reopening, with many offices bringing employees back for the first time. Despite the CBS and Fox moves, most news employees continue to work remotely, and the television programs that originate here have a patchwork of approaches that have quickly become familiar. A majority of the show hosts on MSNBC including Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist of Morning Joe work remotely. Other morning shows have varied approaches. Hoda Kotb of NBC's Today show has worked out of that show's Rockefeller Center studio, but most of her colleagues are at home.
Former Fox, NBC star Kelly interviews Biden accuser
NEW YORK – The former aide who has accused Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexual assault has been interviewed by Megyn Kelly, the one-time Fox News and NBC journalist who's accustomed to a harsh media glare. Tara Reade had been expected to give a television interview since Biden went on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” last week to forcefully deny her accusations from 27 years ago. In Kelly, Reade turned to a television star without a television network. “I know what it's like to be at the center of a media storm,” Kelly said. Kelly also accused the late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment when she worked at the network; her allegations helped lead to his ouster.
