NEW YORK (CBS 2) — NYPD Commanding Officer Lt. Jack Cambria talked about the heroic and often dangerous work of his elite Hostage Negotiation Team, which was profiled by CBS 2’s Maurice DuBois earlier this month.

The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation and the New York City Department of Education pick winners every year for a bookmaking competition, in which local students develop picture books. This year, the subject was coping with Superstorm Sandy. One of the winners, sixth grader Amelia Samoylov, joined us along with foundation executive director Dr. Deborah Pope to talk about the competition.

“Matilda the Musical” is a top contender for the Tony Awards with 12 nominations. CBS 2’s Dana Tyler had a comprehensive look.

And as usual, New Yorkers vented their frustrations to 1010 WINS’ John Montone, in Mouth off to Montone.
