Len Berman to leave WNBC after long, successful run
Here is my newspaper article about Len Berman's coming departure from WNBC-TV after 24 years.
Berman is the latest casualty of the cost-cutting that has hit local TV news in general, and Ch. 4 in particular, with sports departments always a popular target.
Then again, "casualty" might not be the right word, given how upbeat Berman sounded about the whole thing when I spoke to him Tuesday night.
The man had a heck of a run. I'm so old, though, that to me he still seems like the new guy who just replaced Marv Albert on the Ch. 4 news.
Now it's time for the channel to do the right - and no-brainer - thing and make Bruce Beck its lead sports anchor officially.
Then again, he's the only sports personality left, so perhaps it's an obvious move.
