Comcast let Sue go and re-signed Chuck for 3 years. They are both 68 years old. Can sexism be the reason? It can't be ageism. Wouldn't it have been incredible if Comcast would've let Chuck and Sue ride off together in the sunset? It would have been such a great ending for the most successful local news team. Sue is a diehard New Yorker and all things New York. There will never be another news anchor like Sue. They are going to continue hiring younger, less experienced non-New Yorkers (which must mean cheaper talent) to fill the openings. It is quite disconcerting to see all the changes on the local WNBC station. Most are bland and must have just graduated from college. I don't like change, but I do appreciate authenticity and there is nothing phony about Sue Simmons. She's either in a good mood or not. You either like her or hate her. She doesn't "put on" for anyone and losing her will leave a gigantic void in local New York television that will never be filled.
