NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Rita Cosby has joined Pat Kiernan as co-host of 77 WABC's "The Ride Home" beginning Wednesday May 21st.

"The Ride Home" debuted in January as the signature drivetime show featuring the latest information, insight and opinion on news, sports and pop culture with an emphasis on the New York area. "The Ride Home with Pat Kiernan and Rita Cosby" airs weekdays from 5p.m.- 6 p.m.

Cosby appeared on Good Day New York to talk about the show.

She says, "While I've been fortunate to cover the biggest national and international stories for years, there's nothing better than covering stories that touch the very cornerstone of my own neighborhood and place of birth, New York City."

Guests on Kiernan and Cosby's first show together will include New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Martha Stewart.

Born in Brooklyn, Cosby has interviewed more than twenty world leaders, including five U.S. Presidents. Honors for the three-time Emmy winner include the Matrix Award, Headliner Award and Jack Anderson Award for journalism excellence.

Because of her "extraordinary journalism and exemplary service on behalf of her community," October 11th, 2010 was officially named "Rita Cosby Day" in the state of New York. In 2011, she was recognized by the U.S. Congress for her professional achievements.
