Well, we heard some sad news on Friday evening. Longtime WNYT News Anchor Jim Kambrich will be leaving the station. His last day will be on December 4th. Apparently Jim's wife has taken a job in Manhattan as the executive director of Twin Parks Montessori. She had worked as the head of Woodland Hill Montessori School in North Greenbush for over twenty years. Jim has been at Channel 13 since 1994, and we will definitely miss him.
One of my favorite memories of Jim is when we ran into each other at a karaoke bar in Albany several years back. He and a big gang from WNYT were there for a retirement party for one of their producers. Jim got up and belted out one of his favorite songs. It was such a fun night. Along with being an incredible news man, Jim is a truly nice guy and we wish him the best in the future. As we said, Jim's last day at Channel 13 will be on December 4th. Watch his announcement below. No word on who will replace him.
