Solomon Syed

Anchor

Born and raised in New York’s Capital Region, Solomon has been a proud member of the Time Warner Cable News team since February 2010.

First as a reporter, then as an anchor, he has helped drive our coverage of several major stories, including Tropical Storm Irene and Superstorm Sandy, President Obama's several visits to upstate New York, and the installation of Albany’s new Catholic bishop, Edward Scharfenberger. A well-rounded journalist, he's reported on everything from Giants' training camp, to Gov. Cuomo's state budget announcements, to former state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno's criminal appeal hearing in New York City.

A Niskayuna native, Solomon graduated with honors from Boston University with a degree in political science, before receiving his juris doctor, also with honors, from the Quinnipiac University School of Law. He couldn't resist a return to Boston, where he graduated with distinction from BU's graduate broadcast journalism program, while also spending time as a political correspondent in Washington, D.C. There he reported for several television news outlets, including WENY based in Elmira, N.Y., WSEE in Erie, Pa., and Cox Television. Solomon covered all the bases on Capitol Hill, from interviewing then-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at the White House, to covering Obama’s first health care reform speech to Congress in September 2009.

When he's not reporting on the stories that matter to you, Solomon's either spending time with his family, enjoying a good cheeseburger, or rooting on his beloved Yankees, Knicks, Rangers and Patriots.
