Paul MurnaneFrom the south shore of Staten Island after Hurricane Sandy to the visit of Pope Francis to New York City – I’ve been lucky to cover big New York City stories from the street and from the studio over more than 20 years with WCBS Newsradio 880.80 .

I started my New York City radio career as a reporter in 1988. When I hear about a breaking news story usually my first thought involves someone we can call who would know whats going on…Or “how would I get there?”

I think that’s part of what makes WCBS Newsradio 880 a great place. When there is a big story our reporters and anchors do more than just talk about it!

We understand the background and context of New York news. Its not just that the train is down for the morning or afternoon commute;its the latest subway snafu or commuter train glitch-or it raises new questions about the need to invest in new Hudson tunnels…Or bridges…Or safety technology. We know what alternate subways or ferry connections will endure as a result. Or… Its not a call for new revenue to pay for something-its a possible tax increase on top of recent hikes.

When politician “a” says something about politician “b”…
Someone from WCBS has probably been in the room for the hilarious awkward events they both had to attend!

Most radio stations involve listening to someone talking in a room. Being part of WCBS Newsradio 880 means reporting, learning, and understanding things….Which is the best part of working here!
