Have you noticed amNewYork's energetic street hawkers? So has Fox 5, which on Monday interviewed Michael Thorpe, one of the paper's 142 street promoters. 

Thorpe explained how he always has a smile during his 4-hour shift every weekday, which usually starts at around 5 a.m. 

Rich Tomko, amNewYork's publisher, spoke about the benefits of having a crisp read for the paper, and why it's a necessary 20-minute read for New Yorkers.

Overall, amNewYork has 142 street hawkers in Manhattan, who hand out about 300,000 copies of the free daily.
