Neil A. Carousso Departing WCBS 880
Carousso Enterprises founder Neil A. Carousso is leaving WCBS-AM New York at the end of the year to pursue a new opportunity that will be announced at the start of 2024. Barrett News Media covered Carousso’s career announcement here.
After six years, Neil A. Carousso is departing WCBS 880 in New York.
Carousso has worked the news and business beat since joining the station and reflected upon his time at the all-news station in a thread on X.
“It was never lost on me over the last six years that I have produced for many of the anchors and reporters whom I grew up listening to in the backseat of my parents’ cars,” Neil A. Carousso wrote, noting he relied upon the station during Superstorm Sandy. “It was the honor of a lifetime and I’ve made lifelong friends.”
He shared his admiration for former leader Tim Scheld and added that while he enjoyed his time working at the station, it is time to move on to bigger and better things.
“Working at (WCBS 880) never felt like a job for me. As my late mentor and friend and legendary WCBS 880 sports director and anchor Ed Ingles said, ‘If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.’ I never ‘worked’ a day in six years,” said Carousso. “As they say in the biz, ‘stay tuned.’
