You Decide with Errol Louis

Feb 23, 2023

Bob McCarthy was at the Buffalo News for 41 years, spending much of it covering New York politics. He retired this February, leaving behind an award-winning career and a deep understanding of all things related to the so-called Queen City, including the lengthy political life of Buffalo-native Kathy Hochul.

Bob McCarthy joined Errol to talk about the challenges Hochul faces as a governor from Upstate New York, what the battle over her chief judge nomination may mean for Democrats, and why she should not be underestimated as a politician. They also looked back on his long career in journalism and discussed what Buffalonians should be paying attention to.

Finally, they weighed in on how the Christmas blizzard in Buffalo was handled and whether some of the 47 deaths that occurred could have been prevented.
