How Could They?

After more than 20 years at the NBC sports desk in NYC, the class act known as Len Berman was let go. NBC decided not to renew his contract, 8 consecutive Emmy Awards notwithstanding.

This is not your typical Burning Wood post, but this truly saddened me. Talent, intelligence, and savvy used to matter. Brains and class used to be a dangerous thing. But the firing of Len Berman is one more example of why New York is no place for the old, not even someone as young as a brilliant 60 year old man who excelled at his job.

Stay in touch with Len HERE.

Gonna miss you, Len.
