Eric Nies is now a FOX news reporter in New York.
The first-season cast member of The Real World: New York and former host of MTV’s The Grind is now a news reporter at New York City’s FOX affiliate. The New York Observer reports that he’s unsure if this is a permanent career move. He says, “I’m not really sure if I want to be a news reporter,” but he’s giving it a shot; so far, he’s reported four stories–three on FOX’s The Street, the other on “the recreational use of Viagra.”
