Former WNBC Reporter Glenn Zimmerman Wins Award for Production Company

When last we left reporter Glenn Zimmerman, he had become the latest casualty at WNBC at the end of 2010. Since then Zimmerman, who is married to WNYW/Channel 5 meteorologist Shay Ryan, has fully submerged himself in his business, Mad Bear Productions, a video content firm specializing in companies building their brands.

Zimmerman is the Mad Bear president and CEO.  And now he’s an award winner!

His company, which he started in 2008 while still at WNBC, won a 2012 Telly Award in the Internet/Online Video-Infomercial category. Mad Bear was chosen Friday for its production of “The Story of PeriClean: A Brushless Toothbrush”

“Our goal was to make the story of PeriClean about its founder Jack Gruber and his vision to motivate us all to take better care of our mouths,” Zimmerman said in a statement. ”I hope this honor provides Jack and his team an even larger platform to pursue his vision.”

Ziimmerman spent three years at Channel 4 before focusing his energy on Mad Bear.
