Longtime Anchor Barry Bernson Bids Farewell to WDRB Morning Show

“Someone decided about 20 years ago that a quirky feature reporter could put on a suit and necktie, and anchor morning news,” longtime WHAS and WDRB anchor Barry Bernson said in bidding farewell to Louisville viewers. “I still feel out of position, like a left-fielder who’s been moved to first base, but you have forgiven me and watched the newscasts I’ve been on, so I’m grateful” (video above).

Bernson, who has co-anchored WDRB’s morning show for the past eight years, announced last month that he would retire. Even though he’s stepping away from the morning anchor desk, Bernson says that he plans to do special reports for the Fox-affiliate in the near future.
