The co-hosts of the 93Q morning show reveal new insight on their partnership in exclusive interview Thursday at 5:00 & 11:00 p.m. on CBS 5 and NBC 3.
After a quarter of a century working side-by-side, most of the time before the sun comes up, Ted Long and Amy Robbins are still laughing. This month the pair celebrates 25 years as on-air partners on "Ted and Amy In The Morning" on radio station 93Q in Syracuse. There have been fights, chances to leave, a health crisis, big hair, hair loss and deep friendship. Click here for a video preview of the interview, in which Ted and Amy reveal the "best" and "worst" things about the other.
"We are best friends," Robbins said. "She is the planner. We used to have a producer, but Amy would wind up taking over and doing it her way, so that didn't work out," Long recalls of their many years together.
The pair started broadcasting together in November of 1988. At the time Robbins was a recent graduate of Ithaca College. Long was already on the air doing the morning drive at 93Q. Robbins was initially hired to read the news as part of the show. Quickly, she was intalled as the co-host. "We knew, I think pretty early on, that there was something about us together that just clicked - it really worked," Robbins said.
