Reporter Layoffs At WCBS-TV

0401weinberger.jpgTwo WCBS-TV reporters have been laid off.

FishbowlNY has learned that Scott Weinberger (pictured) and Andrew Kurtzman are no longer with the local CBS affiliate.

According to Weinberger’s bio (which has now been taken offline):

While at WCBS-TV Weinberger scored exclusives with some of the most talked about cases in NY, including the only interview with Darryl Littlejohn, the man charged with the murder of John Jay graduate student Imette St. Guillen. In 2007, Weinberger scored an exclusive interview with David Berkowitz, best known as the Son of Sam, for the 30th anniversary of his terrorizing serial murders in NY. He also broke exclusive information on cases relating to some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Weinberger was the first to report that investigators found a large amount of prescription drugs in Anna Nicole Smith‘s hotel room, and was also the first to report that dozens of employees were suspended at Palisades Medical Center for leaking medical information about George Clooney.

Sounds to us like he won’t have much trouble finding a new job.
