On June 28, 2012 it was announced that Dave Price will be returning to Good Day New York as a co-anchor along with Rosanna Scotto starting July 2, 2012. He was quoted by Newsday as saying "The chance to rejoin Fox 5 and be a part of the 'Good Day New York' family again was one I couldn't pass up. I've been friends with Rosanna [Scotto] forever and to be honest--it's tough to get a table at Fresco--so this will help a lot. I can't wait to start the day with our viewers and provide all the news and information they need and maybe a few smiles and laughs each morning, too. It doesn't get much better than this. I'm raring to go."
Dave left the show abruptly on January 24, announcing his departure at the end of the broadcast. Reports conflict as to the reason for his exit, but all agree that he requested to be let out of his contract. Some sources claimed he was to be moved to the earlier 4:30 - 7AM news broadcast, as former Good Day Anchor Greg Kelly was to be returned to his former position, his brief stint as evening news anchor ended. Dave was against the move, and asked to be let out of his contract.
Price released a statement saying: "I had a great experience returning to Fox 5 but it is time to look for opportunities outside WNYW. I love [co-host] Rosanna [Scotto] and the gang and wish them all the best."
