Mike Woods and Ines Rosales of WNYW (FOX 5) are easily some of the most recognizable, trusted faces in New York. He serves as meteorologist delivering New Yorker’s daily dose of the latest weather and she is the traffic reporter for Good Day New York, the Emmy Award-winning daily morning news show on WNYW (Fox 5).
On December 26, New Yorkers were treated to a first-hand view of our organization’s work when the program televised a specially filmed segment featuring Mr. Woods and Ms. Rosales’ participation in Greeter for a Day, a special program created by Big Apple Greeter.
The program invites CEOs and other high profile New Yorkers to take visitors on an informal walk through their favorite neighborhood. The program reflects a positive image of the city and the Greeter for a Day serves as a goodwill ambassador for New York and the Big Apple Greeter way.
“We were asked if we’d like to participate and we eagerly agreed,” says Mr. Woods. “New York is a city like none other. It is truly a melting pot that celebrates all cultures, races, religions, and people.”
The visitors, a couple from Texas, received a guided tour of the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn by Ms. Rosales and Mr. Woods.
“We were so excited to take our visitors to our favorite place…a choice spot for a traffic reporter like me,” says Ms. Rosales.
This is the first time that our Greeter for a Day program has been broadcast on a major network. Fox 5 is the flagship television station of the News Corporation-owned Fox Broadcasting Company located in New York City.
