George Weber RIP

Over the weekend veteran WABC radio newsman George Weber was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment, a victim of murder. The police are investigating but it looks like he was stabbed in the neck--most likely, in my view, is that he walked in on a robber who panicked.

Dreadful news, to be sure. I didn't know George other than by reputation but my best friend worked with him on WABC's morning show and always had great things to say about him. A bunch of other colleagues have been saying similar things--nice man, opened his home to everyone for great parties, gave a lot of people their start in radio...

The list of accolades goes on--we should all be as lucky as to be remembered so fondly by so many--and at the same time it is sad at how unlucky he was this weekend.

George worked very closely with Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa. While I'm not encouraging revenge, I would think that his killer might want to turn himself into police before the Angels find him.

Rest in peace, George. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May George's soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
