Bring Carolyn Gusoff Back on the Air: NOW!
- All respectable news organizations looking for that superstar reporter
- United States of America
In December 2008, WNBC Reporter / Producer Carolyn Gusoff was let go from her position due to budget cuts. For the millions of New Yorkers who grew up watching her and loved having her in their living rooms, it was a devastating reality to accept.
Those millions of New Yorkers owe Carolyn a debt of gratitude and they want to see her back on the air again.
Carolyn has received numerous honors for her work including a 2004 New York Emmy Award for On-Camera Performance/General Assignment Reporting.
She has also garnered eight New York Emmy nominations for coverage including her reporting of the American Airlines Flight 587 crash and The Belmont Stakes. Carolyn has earned dozens of Long Island Fair Media Council FOLIO awards for a wide range of topics including racial issues, science, health, environmental, political and feature reporting.
In 2008, she received FOLIO awards in the categories of “Enterprise Reporting” and “Investigative Journalism in a Regularly Scheduled Newscast”.
She also won a total of seven first-place Society of Professional Journalists/Press Club of Long Island awards for deadline and feature reporting; a national commendation award from The American Women in Radio and Television; a local Emmy award for outstanding coverage of a breaking story; an Associated Press/New York Spot News Award for “Avianca Crash”; and a United Press International/New York Broadcast Award for outstanding achievement, investigative documentary, "No Quick Fix."
We the undersigned:
Recognize that Carolyn Gusoff, a broadcast news anchor, reporter, producer and Emmy award winning journalist should be on the air doing what she does best.
For over 20-years, many of us who live in New York learned about the biggest stories of our time through Carolyn. She was our most vocal advocate and always went above and beyond her duties. What other reporter in modern history works 36-straight hours straight on a story?!
Carolyn's sincerity and dedication to excellence was a big reason why we didn't change the channel.
We the undersigned implore any news organization who wishes to destroy their competition to immediately hire Carolyn. If she has to leave New York, we'll miss her like crazy however, we want her and you to ultimately be happy.
