Former WNYW Sports Reporter Andy Adler Leaves KNBC

Andy Adler, was a popular sports reporter/anchor on WNYW/Channel 5 for three years, before returning home to the West Coast in 2010.

But after less than two years, Adler decided she missed her passion–sports. Adler, today, co-anchored her final weekend morning broadcast at KNBC in Los Angeles. She also was a general assignment reporter at the station. 

Adler tells FishbowlNY exclusively that she is excited to resume her sportscasting career, at an undisclosed location March 1.

“I miss my sports. I miss it,” Adler admits. ”This is my passion. This is what I do when I’m not working.” 

Adler missed it even more when she was called on for occasional sports reporting at KNBC.

“Every time I did it, I just left like this is home,” Adler admits. “It was just time to do it permanently.” 

But Adler says she’ll maintain ties with NBC, doing various news pieces. However, she couldn’t confirm if the new sports job is within the NBC family.

The personable Adler says she’ll remain to stay tight-lipped for another few weeks before the official announcement is made.

“It was a really tough decision, like when I left Fox,” Adler says. “I’m really going to miss what I do now.”

However, the versatile reporter is ready to refocus her energy on sports.

“I’m going to go back and rock it, and go do what it is I love to do!” Adler says.
