Ken Berger Rumors
NBA insider Ken Berger will not return to CBS. Berger was informed by management in July that his contract would not be renewed. According to two sources with knowledge of the situation, the reason was that CBS brought on veteran NBA reporter Ethan Skolnick, who lives in South Florida where CBS Sports’ web operations are based and is therefore a better fit for their ongoing video and mobile push. The sources requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information.
