New York, NY. (January 25, 2022) — City & State, the premier political news and information organization, announced today that media personality Skye Ostreicher will be joining their award-winning New York team, along with the launch of a streaming/podcast series: Political Personalities with Skye. This venture is aimed at bringing subscribers policy content with a fun twist, with a plan to add additional programming throughout the state in the coming months.
“After being a big fan of City & State and seeing their must-attend events for nearly a decade, I’m excited to join a fast-growing and respected content organization,” said Skye Ostreicher. “Politics is also about the personalities behind the policies, and I’m thrilled to be able to highlight some of the more exciting figures in New York’s dynamic political scene in 2022. Everyone knows what our leaders do on the job, but getting to know how they think behind the scenes is a unique story that has yet to be told.”
Political Personalities with Skye will feature high profile guests breaking down the issues closest to their hearts, but also dishing on what they do for fun, how they got their start, their hidden talents, even their family and love life. Between light-hearted daily video content and a weekly deep dive in her podcast, the content Skye delivers will appeal to newbies and political experts alike.
“Even as City & State expands to Pennsylvania and Florida, there are still exciting stories to tell and platforms to utilize as we grow our mission to be the one-stop content shop for all things political in New York,” said Tom Allon, publisher and founder of City & State New York. “Political Personalities with Skye will be the first of many exciting new streaming programs and podcast series that will extend our storytelling abilities into the intrigue, gossip, fashion, style, and human connection of the people we elect to govern and legislate. Politics can be a fun sport and we look forward to chronicling all the day-to-day developments, in public and behind the scenes.”

Skye Ostreicher joins the City & State team after successfully creating and running her own 70-episode Instagram TV series called Life Before the Virus. After a stint as a political consultant she served as regional director on the Mike Bloomberg presidential campaign, but late March 2020 found Skye (like so many New Yorkers) jobless and locked inside a one-bedroom apartment. Never one to be content with nothing to do, she turned to her contacts in government for candid conversations on camera with elected officials and community leaders. This project continued to evolve, leading to informational and fun community video series with Herald Community Newspaper Group’s Herald Inside LI, Schneps Media’s PoliticsNY with Skye, and now City & State’s Political Personalities with Skye.
