WNYW has revamped their morning Anchor team and are hoping that this is the winning combination.
The Fox O&O (AKA The Firm) has named Antwan Lewis and Teresa Priolo as the new team in the AM. Lewis was the station's Weekend Anchor and Priolo, who joined the station in March of 2012 was a Reporter.
Here is the internal memo sent to the staff and obtained by FTVLive, from News Director Byron Harmon:

Subject: the New Good Day Wake Up Anchor Team
I am excited to announce (after an exhaustive intergalactic search) that Teresa Priolo and Antwan Lewis have been named as anchors for Good Day Wake Up. There are so many ways to have fun with their initials but I’m not going there. (See how I went there without going there?)
Good Day Wake Up is the first show out of the gate for us so it is vitally important that we hit the ground running. Our new anchor team will work with Lamar and our GDNY producers to infuse new energy and content into the show. This will include newsmaker guests and creative segments especially in the 6:30a half hour.
We are pleased that we found our team in house because it’s important for you to know there is a path to advancement in our newsroom.
Please join me in congratulating them.
Vice President of News
