Bernstein to Be ABC Sideline Reporter
Sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein, formerly of CBS, is returning to ABC and ESPN. Part of Bernstein's duties will be to work ABC's weekly college football telecasts. That opening was created by the departure of Sam Ryan, who left to sign with New York's Channel 2 and CBS. Bernstein, 35, left CBS earlier this year, saying she wanted to pursue other interests. She was with ABC and ESPN from 1995-98 before departing for CBS. Bernstein's first assignment will be Sunday night's ESPN telecast of the Yankees-Mets game. Bernstein's time at CBS will be remembered for her interview of Roy Williams, then the basketball coach at Kansas, after a bitter loss to Syracuse in the 2003 NCAA tournament title game. Bernstein's questions about his interest in the opening at North Carolina drew a sharp response from Williams, who eventually took the Tar Heel job.
