Audacy News 1010 WINS/92.3 WINS-FM New York has announced the addition of Scott Stanford as morning anchor alongside Susan Richard.
Stanford has spent much of his career as a sportscaster with stints at sister 880 WCBS, WWOR-TV, WNBC, and YES Network before moving over to serve as an anchor at WPIX-TV from 2013-19. He and his former WPIX co-host Sukanya Krishnan currently host “The Suki & Scott Show” on Gannett’s USA Today Network. He has also served as a host of WWE programming since 2009.
Stanford fills the morning anchor opening created by Lee Harris’ move to NewsNation in May.

“As we continue to reshape mornings on WINS, we’re delighted to welcome Scott Stanford into the mix,” said Ivan Lee, Brand Manager, 1010/92.3 WINS. “His impressive resume and wealth of experience in this market will undoubtedly enhance our commitment to delivering top-notch news coverage and engaging content to our listeners every morning.”
“Like most life-long New Yorkers, my Dad was always listening to 1010 WINS in the car when I was a kid,” said Stanford. “As an adult, WINS has been my go-to station for news, traffic and weather. As a New York broadcaster, it’s an honor to now be one of the morning voices on this legendary station.”
