NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In the first month of 2013, even as the Times Square confetti was still settling, we have already seen the flu reach epidemic levels, a ferry boat crash and a tragedy on Budd Lake in New Jersey.

WCBS 880’s Wayne Cabot produced a montage of some of the biggest news stories of the month, including the Manti Te’o ‘catfishing’ story.

The union representing New York City school bus drivers and matrons launched a strike, affecting about 152,000 kids.

This was also the month that Lance Armstrong finally came clean about his years of doping to become a cycling champion. Also in sports and due, at least in part, to the cloud cast by performance-enhancing drugs, no one was elected to the Baseball Hall Of Fame.

House Speaker John Boehner also came under fire from members on both sides of the aisle for delaying a vote on superstorm Sandy aid.

President Obama was also sworn in for his second term in office last week.

These are just some of the big stories we’ve followed these past 31 days.
