Departing WNBC Reporter Tim Minton: ‘The Business is Really Undergoing a Revolution’

Veteran reporter Tim Minton has left WNBC on his own terms.

Minton departed WNBC on January 7th after 12 years with the NBC flagship.  He tells TVSpy sister site FishbowlNY that the move was two years in the making.

Amid WNBC’s reinvention of itself over the last few years, Minton decided that it was time for him to pursue opportunities in journalism beyond local TV news.

“The business is really undergoing a revolution. It’s bigger than just a few little lurches in one direction or another,” Minton told FishbowlNY.

“I want to produce different types of content… and I want to have a role in managing it.”

Revolving Door Spins at WNBC; Minton Out and Glorioso In

The revolving door continues to spin at New York’s WNBC.  Following the departure of reporter Glenn Zimmerman, veteran investigative reporter Tim Minton has left the NBC flagship.

Minton (left), who has won 18 Emmys, had been with the station since 1998.  TVSpy’s sister site FishbowlNY first reported Minton’s departure yesterday. His final day was last Friday.

While Zimmerman and Minton are now part of a long list of recent WNBC departures, the station has recently added talent.  Chris Glorioso, who local viewers will recognize from his time with CW-affiliate WPIX, began reporting for the station last week.

Glorioso is a two-time Emmy winner.  One of his first reports for WNBC was on New York’s burgeoning black market for the alcoholic energy drink Four Loko.
