Scotto departs NY1

Friday, December 31, 2010 - 10:34 AM

Veteran NY1 political reporter Michael Scotto is leaving the station this weekend for a job with the Partnership for New York City, I'm told.

Scotto has been at NY1 for nearly a decade and was among those who hosted Inside City Hall while the station sought a permanent replacement for their departed anchor Dominic Carter. One of Scotto's most notable stories at NY1 was recording Mayor Bloomberg's uncharitable comments about recently-departed Dr. Atkins.

Scotto's first day at the Partnership is Monday.

Competent and professional, I never found him to be all that compelling as a journalist or analyst. The Partnership is an interesting choice for a former journalist. I hope we'll get a follow-up about his new position.
