Scene in Easton: Chauncey Howell Sings Schubert

By Christina Georgiou

Easton is home to many colorful and creative individuals, and some familiar faces seen around the city are actually quite famous well beyond the local area.

One such person is longtime TV news reporter Chauncey Howell, who is a familiar face to millions  of viewers in the New York City tri-state area. With a career spanning four decades, first on NBC news and more recently on cable channel News 12, Howell's reporting continues to be broadcast regularly.

The Easton Eccentric caught him just after returning from Brooklyn on Tuesday evening, where he had spent the day producing a short segment for News 12 on the history of Senator Street in the Bay Ridge historic district, which also included some interesting commentary on the interesting facial hair of men in the 19th century.

Despite a long day, after a quick bite to eat at Pearly Baker's, Howell, who enjoys classical music in his spare time, was moved to sing, in German, a bit of Franz Schubert's "Die Forelle" ("The Trout") in front of the restaurant.
