Former WNBC Veterans Form New Website–

Several local TV veterans are collaborating on a new website– The site features video reports and clips by Jay DeDapper, Tim Minton, Len Berman, and film critic Alison Bailes.

They are former WNBC employees, along with the site’s co-founder Philip O’Brien, who was executive producer of the 11 p.m. newscast from 2006 to 2009.

“ is where the viewers are: online and on mobile devices,” O’Brien tells FishbowlNY. “They find out what’s going on and have fun doing so. We give them the buzz, the take, the edge on news and hot trending subjects.”

Minton alluded to the new venture when FishbowlNY spoke to him in January.

“I want to produce different types of content… and I want to have a role in managing it,” Minton said at the time.

Berman, since leaving WNBC in 2009, started a daily Top 5 list that has thousands of subscribers. He also uses Twitter and Facebook to promote his Top 5. But, albeit online, this marks a welcome return for the popular sportscaster in getting some “face time.”

“I’m enjoying my new gig. No tie, no teleprompter,” Berman says. [It's] just fun sports updates. I think Buzz60 has some real potential.”

Mike Avila
and Maureen Aladin are also featured on the site.
