Chuck Scarborough News 4 | Career

He began his television career as a reporter at WLOX-TV in Biloxi, Mississippi, and later WDAM-TV in Laurel, Mississippi, before moving to Atlanta to work for WAGA-TV. In 1972, Scarborough’s first big market anchoring job was at WNAC-TV in Boston. He joined the station as part of a two-man anchor team with famed New England journalist Lee Nelson but was shortly moved to the station’s news shows as the sole anchor. He was requested to host Mass Reaction, a weekly program in which the public was invited to the studio to question newscasters and newsmakers in addition to his anchoring duties.

Scarborough joined NBC News in March 1974 as the solo anchor of NewsCenter 4 at 5:00 p.m. on WNBC-TV (later renamed News 4 New York). At 6 p.m. and 11 p.m., he eventually became the station’s lead anchor. When WABC-TV anchor Bill Beutel departed after 37 years in 2003, he became the unofficial “dean” of New York-area television news anchors. In 2011, he surpassed Beutel as the longest-serving English-language news anchor in New York. Scarborough became the longest-serving anchor in New York television history five years later, succeeding Rafael Pineda of Spanish-language WXTV.

For the first 20 years of his career, he was an NBC News correspondent who frequently hosted the network’s prime-time news updates. Marv Albert, Len Berman, Jack Cafferty, Dr. Frank Field, John Hambrick, Pat Harper, Pia Lindstrom, Sue Simmons, Michele Marsh, Al Roker, and Tom Snyder have all worked with him at WNBC. Scarborough presented the syndicated programs Images – A Year in Review and Memories in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Scarborough’s last broadcast in that time slot as a regular anchor was on July 14, 2017, at 11:00 p.m., after which he shortened his schedule to only doing the 6 p.m. At 11 p.m., Stefan Holt, the son of NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, took over. Scarborough has since been on the 11:00 pm program multiple times, filling in for Holt when he is unavailable.
