Greg will be back to co-hosting ‘Good Day New York’ with Rosanna Scotto very soon.

The rape charge against Good Day New York host Greg Kelly was dropped in a New York City court Feb. 7 after sex crimes unit chief Martha Bashford found there was insufficient evidence to charge the NYPD commissioner’s son with sexual assault. “I am thankful that the investigation established what I’ve known all along, that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me,” Greg says.

One of Greg’s Good Day co-workers tells the New York Daily News that the decision is a “big relief,” adding that “those who know Greg always felt he should be exonerated. Hopefully, the headlines will be as big for this part of the story.”

Greg was initially accused of rape Jan. 25 when a woman claimed he raped her in her own office. He has since taken a leave of absence from his post at Good Day New York, but is expected to return soon.
