News WINS-AM/New York will begin a simulcast on WNYL-FM (92.3) improving its coverage reach throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The move, which begins October 27, displaces ALT 92.3. Additionally, a new agreement with SAG-AFTRA will allow cross-utilization of anchors and reporters for both stations, which will enhance resource sharing and coordination to provide more cohesive coverage of the Tri-state area. The first of its kind collaboration will allow both stations to bolster their broadcast and digital news coverage, while maintaining their unique brands.

"At a time when quality journalism and local reporting is so critical, it was the ideal moment to make a strong investment in our news creation and distribution capabilities," said Audacy New York Market President Chris Oliviero. "Audacy New York's news organization, anchored by both 1010 WINS and WCBS 880, is the premier audio news outlet in the city and now more than ever we remain committed to serving our audiences as we have done so for over the last fifty years. These series of moves will solidify our earned position as the go-to trusted source for news, traffic and weather every day."

Concurrently, Ben Mevorach is elevated to Vice President of New York News and will oversee both 1010/92.3 WINS and WCBS 880. Ivan Lee has been promoted to Brand Manager of both stations.

"We are standing at the edge of an exciting new era for news in New York for our team, our advertisers, and, most importantly, our listeners," said Mevorach. "1010 WINS and WCBS 880 will be in more places, covering more stories, creating more original content, expanding our digital footprint, and now offering listeners a crystal-clear FM audio experience. Both brands will retain their distinct identities but will now harness resources with the single mission of better serving our communities and reaching the next generation of news consumers."

Mevorach's career in print and broadcast news spans more than 30 years, including as Brand Manager of WINS since 1992. He began his career in Boston as a magazine writer and editor for international publication The Library Scene. He moved to radio in 1984 to work for legendary sportscaster Curt Gowdy before moving to New York in 1990 to help launch Long Island's first local network news/talk show, "Good Morning Long Island."

Lee started his broadcasting career in New York City in 2000 as a producer at 102.7 WNEW after a successful internship at the station. After a short time in West Virginia radio, he returned to the Tri-state area to be the producer for Mort Crim's syndicated "News You Care About," "Second Thoughts" and the "American Spirit." Lee was later promoted to Operations Manager at Talk America, which rebranded to Liberty Broadcasting. In 2004, he moved to WCBS 880 and took over as Operations Coordinator for the newsroom, and served as the producer of Yankees baseball. He later transitioned to a news editor for 1010 WINS in the fall of 2010 before being promoted to Assistant News Director in 2012.
