Yes, you read that correctly. Some weird, magical series of events has brought together beloved NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan–best known for “Pat’s Papers,” and for being Leah’s favorite person ever–and fashion blogger-of-the-moment The Man Repeller aka Leandra Medine. According to Pat’s blog (yes, he has a blog), the two were brought together on Twitter. He explains,
She’s a fan of my morning show on NY1. Somewhere in that exchange of messages I promised to read her blog aloud. It might have been a little tricky to explain the gag to the entire NY1 audience. So I passed on the urge to read about turtlenecks on NY1 today. But my pledge was not forgotten.
So, he recorded a video of himself reading Leandra’s latest post about turtlenecks in the same slightly theatrical, slightly sarcastic-sounding way that he rounds up the newspapers every morning, replete with dramatic pauses. It’s fantastic. He even edits the part where she writes, “for shits,” and instead he says, “for the heck of it,” because he’s Pat Kiernan and can’t say bad words!
