At NYC Media Group (since rebranded as NYC Media), Wierson was vocal critic of traditional public broadcasting for second-tier stations in heavily saturated markets like New York City. In 2005, Wierson disbanded the station’s long-held PBS status, enabling NYC TV’s original shows to take over prime-time “It was smart not to be the ‘fifth channel,’ said Dalton Delan, executive vice president of WETA in Washington and producer of the PBS News Hour. You don’t want to be the triple-A team. You want to find a new ballpark where you can be No. 1.” In August 2006, Wierson, Unger and Bloomberg appeared in the NBC studios, joined WNBC General Manager Francis X. Comerford and former NBC Station Group President Jay Ireland in announcing a partnership between NYC TV and NBC flagship station WNBC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who began Bloomberg Television as part of his media empire, knew better than most the value of a city television station, his aides said.”
