Chuck Scarborough is celebrating his 40th anniversary at WNBC, the NBC owned station in New York. In an interview with NBCUniversal Direct, Scarborough reflects on his career path (from Biloxi to Atlanta to Boston to New York) and the most challenging moments of his career at WNBC.
“Frankly, I think the ability to stay here — that I’ve been blessed to be able to stay in this market — is so remarkable for this length of time. It doesn’t happen that people stay for 40 years in one job in television news,” Scarborough said. “…Mainly, I’m grateful that I was able to do it, that there was enough of an audience watching us for me to maintain that position throughout the years, and to be able to build a reservoir of credibility that helps me cover the news here.” Watch:
