Tom Brokaw Quips Wise at Lunch for Meru
Huffington Post - over 1 year
On the third floor of the townhouse that is "21," Tom Brokaw interviewed Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi, the star and filmmakers of the documentary Meru at a special lunch celebrating the film's success. (Meru is the number two non-fiction film at the box office, behind Amy.) Featuring climbers on the dangerous Shark's Fin of Meru, a mountain in the Himalayas more treacherous than Everest, Meru depicts a breathtaking journey to the top, focusing on the friendship among the climbers. Brokaw joked, for him, the hike up the three flights to the nautical-themed wood-lined dining space is an astonishing achievement. That got a knowing laugh at a lunch taking place on the eve of the DOCNYC festival, and just as awards season gains momentum. Diners included Chuck Scarborough and others in the media, and much-honored documentary filmmakers Barbara Kopple, Robert Richter, Jehane Noujaim and Katharina Otto-Bernstein. Barbara Kopple's documentary, Miss Sharon Jones!, about a soul/ funk sing ...

Sue Simmons' Last Day This Friday
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Despite multiple social media campaigns to salvage her post at WNBC, veteran news anchor Sue Simmons is on track to exit the station on Friday, June 15th. Simmons' final newscast will air during the 11pm slot opposite co-anchor Chuck Scarborough, ending the 32 year run of New York's longest running anchor team. The 69-year old's firing back in March sparked heavy backlash from Simmons' loyal fans and even a #SaveSueSimmons hashtag, Facebook group, and Tumblr account devoted to keeping the longtime anchor on air. Despite the heartfelt attempts, however, not everyone's sad to see her go. The New York Post reported on disgruntled WNBC employees who have come to resent Simmons for her whopping $5 million a year salary and alleged bad attitude. Simmons' history of on-air gaffes, most notably her infamous "What the f**k" faux pas, and admittance to boozing on the job probably hasn't helped save her career either. Even as recently as May, the anchor bestowed onto view ...

TV Week - almost 5 years
A news anchor who grabbed headlines in 2008 when she used the word "fuck" on live television had another “didn’t know the microphone was on” moment, the New York Post reports. Sue Simmons, the legendary New York anchor for WNBC-TV, was caught by a hot mike just before Monday's 11 o'clock news, when viewers heard her say, "The ball took a bad hop and it hit me in my breast!," the story says. Her co-anchor Chuck Scarborough was apparently shocked and asked, "Are we on?," the piece notes. WNBC has said it won't pick up Simmons' contract when it expires this summer, with the anchor set to leave in June.
