Fox Television stations flagship WNYW-TV in New York hired ABC News anchor Ron Corning as Jodi Applegate’s co-host for the “Good Day New York” morning show. He is expected to make his first appearance on the morning show this month.

“Ron’s vast television experience makes him the ideal fit for this job. He has the perfect background and personality to make a real contribution to ‘Good Day New York,'” WNYW general manager Lew Leone said in a Thursday announcement.

Mr. Corning most recently became familiar to night-owl news junkies as co-anchor of ABC’s overnight newscast “World News Now” and “World News This Morning.” Before that, he spent two years as co-host of the syndicated show “The Daily Buzz.” His earlier experience included hosting specials for HGTV, E! Television and “Extra,” and stints as a local anchor and reporter.
