NY1 ("just one guy")
NY1 is New York City's all news network. The news network is known for low-cost production (although not lacking in youthful enthusiasm). Its one-man reporter/camera man on-the-scene reporting prompted some to say it's called "New York One" because "it's just one guy."

NY1 News is Time Warner's 24-hour newschannel in New York City. Available exclusively on Time Warner Cable, NY1 covers the city's five boroughs with more than 25 full-time reporters.

NY1 signed on in the fall of 1992 from its newsroom on Manhattan's West 42nd Street. As it approached its tenth anniversary, the station moved into a new state-of-the-art facility in the historic Chelsea Market building in January of 2002. With an integrated, all-digital production system and more than 600 hours of computer-based video storage, the facility represents one of the most advanced newsgathering operations in the world.

NY1 expanded into New York City's Latino community by launching the city's first 24-hour Spanish-language newschannel, NY1 Noticias in June 2003. The channel is available on Time Warner Cable's DTV channel 801.

The Land of 'One-Man Bands'

A joke about NY1 circulates in local television circles. They call it New York One, people say, because it's just one guy.
