AN IMPORTANT READ
When we worked in Miami at WTVJ, the sports department run by the legendary Bernie Rosen was on a par with the news department.
Generously staffed with anchors, reporters, producers, and photographers, Bernie’s sports department was the gold standard for sports departments across the country.
In February, the last member of the sports department at WTVJ left….and turned out the lights.
Out in LA, Fred Roggin is gone after what seemed like a lifetime on KNBC.
Every day across the country, sports anchors are turning up at the news anchor desk to keep their career going as their department shrinks and disappears
“Sports Illustrated” has a compelling read on just what is happening to local sports coverage across the country.
It is worth the time and provides some eye-opening bullet points.
