Ex-WSYR Anchor Silverman is NYC-Bound

March 30, 2011 by

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!"
