The Search for the Next NY1 Wise Guy

Mark Green’s entrance into the public advocate race means he’ll be leaving his role on NY1's Wise Guys, the segment in which he has jostled, for our edification and amusement, with former mayor Ed Koch and former senator Alfonse D’Amato.

Green's reappearance on Wise Guys after his unsuccessful bid for attorney general in 2006 was a return to the show's proven formula. (While he had been gone, a series of guests filled his seat.)

NY1 politics director Bob Hardt says they’re looking for a new Wise Guy, and wrote in an email, “I would welcome any suggestions from your readers.”

So! Who should it be?
