NY1 was conceived in 1991 by the president of Time Warner Cable's New York City cable group, ostensibly to add value to cable as it eroded market share to budding satellite services such as DirecTV and Dish Network. The station launched September 8, 1992 from its newsroom on Manhattan's West 42nd Street. Construction of the 42nd Street facility was completed on July 15, but the channel's newly-hired reporters actually began work a month earlier by attending a videojournalism "boot camp". While some of the reporters had used their own cameras in other markets, most had had no exposure to the technical side of journalism. Following their training, the reporters and the rest of the staff took part in an additional two-month training period that included four weeks of real-time rehearsal. A watershed event came in the final weeks of training, with the collapse of a former post office building on Manhattan's West Side. Although not on the air, NY1 reporters covered the story as if the channel was fully operational, interviewing survivors and witnesses and reporting the story more fully than competing television outlets. In January of 2002, the station moved to a brand new, all digital facility at the Chelsea Market in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. On June 30, 2003, NY1 Noticias, a Spanish-language version of the channel, began operating for digital cable subscribers.

NY1 was the first Time Warner Cable local news channel, and Time Warner Cable went on to add 24-hour local news networks in several other markets modeled after NY1, including "Bay News 9" in Tampa, "Central Florida News 13" in Orlando, "News 8 Austin" in the Texas capital, "News 14 Carolina", which serves the Triangle and Charlotte in North Carolina, "Capital News 9" in Albany, New York, "R News" in Rochester, New York and "News 10 Now" in Syracuse. Notably, "News 24 Houston" and "News 9 San Antonio", both joint ventures between Time Warner Cable and Belo, were closed within the first two years of operation.

In 2001, Time Warner Cable began offering NY1 to digital cable subscribers in the Albany market, with other markets following soon thereafter.


The most common "program" on NY1 is a half-hour block beginning at the top and bottom of every hour. The first minute contains top headlines followed by "Weather On The 1's", a brief one minute weather recap. The remainder of the half-hour is filled with taped news segments heavily focusing on stories from the New York metropolitan region. Nearly all stories are taped, even segments made to look like they are happening live; instead of a "live" indicator while reporters speak, most NY1 stories have a graphic saying merely that the reporter is (or, rather, was) "on scene." This is because when the report first aired, it may have been live. Moreover, reporters generally shoot their own stories with videocamera, and take them back to the newsroom to be edited into the broadcast rotation (and then possibly fed to CNN and other Time Warner news stations).

On programs like "Inside City Hall", NY1 offers much more extensive local political coverage than the area's broadcast stations. Seeking to expand its political coverage, WCBS-TV attracted "Inside City Hall" anchor Andrew Kirtzman. "Inside City Hall" is now hosted by Dominic Carter. WCBS-TV, channel 2, is the flagship station of the CBS television network, located in New York City. ... Andrew Kirtzman on Kirtzman & Kramer on WCBS in June of 2006. ... There are very few or no other articles that link to this one. ...

Sports reports are featured throughout the day, while an all comprehensive, hour long call-in sports show "Sports on 1: The Last Word" is featured every night at 11:35pm.

In an effort to compete with local late night newscasts, NY1 introduced its own 11 o'clock newscast, "News At 11" on January 22nd, 2007. The newscast is hosted by veteran NY1 anchor Lewis Dodley and former CBS news correspondent Elizabeth Kaledin, an original member of the NY1 News team. Kaledin served as weekend anchor and reporter when the newschannel launched, before joining CBS two years later. CBS is one of the largest radio and television networks in the United States. ...

The Call

Launched in July of 2005, NY1's "The Call" is a live, half hour call-in and write in news show hosted by John Schiumo. Throughout the day, viewers are encouraged to vote on the top news stories of the day, and after receiving an email alert as to the top story, asked to write or call in to discuss the topic with Schiumo.

Very often at the beginning of the show, Shciumo will often have a short interaction with his senior producer, Susanna Hegner, in which they will both offer their opinions of the days news.
