A television segment made famous by late mayor Ed Koch, NY1’s “Wise Guys” is going to get a new featured politician, former Borough President Claire Shulman.

Airing Tuesdays at 7 and 10 p.m. “Wise Guys” appears on the cable channel’s hour-long political news and opinion program “Road To City Hall,” hosted by Errol Louis.

Schulman, who served as borough president from 1986 until 2002 and was the first woman elected to the position, will discuss the week’s political issues along with former U.S. Senator Alfonse D’Amato and former State Assemblymember Roberto Ramirez.

Ed Koch, who personally knew Shulman and was mayor when she became borough president, regularly appeared as one of NY1’s “Wise Guys.” The show even honored him on his 88th birthday in December just a couple of months before his death.

U.S. Senate candidates Kirsten Gillibrand and Wendy Long will take part in their one and only debate tonight at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs.

The debate between Democrat and incumbent Gillibrand and her Republican challenger Long will be broadcast live on NY1 and YNN, and co-moderated by NY1’s political anchor Errol Louis and YNN’s Capital Tonight host Liz Benjamin.

Gillibrand is expected to be reelected.

In a September Quinnipiac University poll, 64 percent of likely voters said they would vote for  Gillibrand.

The New York State Senator was appointed in 2009 to fill the empty seat left by Hillary Clinton when she became Secretary of State. In 2010, Gillibrand ran in a special election and won with around 60 percent of the vote.

If she wins this November, it will be the first time she is elected to a full six-year U.S. Senate term.
