BVT News Roundup 4 January 2014.

Scenes from around a snowbound New York City, which, according to mayor Bill DeBlasio, received about ten inches.  The storm, which swept through on the mayor’s second and third day in office, closed city schools and disrupted roadways, trains and buses.  (Photos: Outside and inside in Brooklyn by Todd Heisler / New York Times; jogging through Riverside Park in Manhattan by Mike Segar / Reuters; Harlem by Karsten Moran / NYT; the Brooklyn Bridge by Andrew Gombert / EPA; and Times Square tourists by Darren Ornitz / Reuters via NY Times)

“I give Dante an ‘A’ for effort and a ‘D’ for punctuality.”

Mayor BILL DeBLASIO, during a morning press conference updating the snow response efforts in New York City; here, the mayor was referring to his own son’s efforts to shovel out the front of his home in Brooklyn, adding that Dante is “not a morning person.”

Heh.

BVT News Roundup 1 January 2014.

We’re gonna need a bigger floatie.

Stan Brooks of 1010 WINS in New York City was the first radio reporter I ever worked with who was always, always a gentleman. When he filed a story you knew it was done by a tried and true journalist who understood Big Apple politics and power brokers like no other. Last week, Mayor Bloomberg named the radio room at City Hall after the veteran newsman, whose wife, Lynn, died from cancer — the wretched disease which would also take his life. 
The airwaves are lessened by your absence, Mr. Brooks. May your colleagues carry on your legacy; your audience will miss your reporting, and your voice.
And I will miss your good humor, your laugh, and your singularly New York kindness that helped a PR noob get his bearings straight.
Rest in peace, good sir.
