Ernie Baur Retires

 DCRTV, Dave Hughes's up to the minute broadcast news site reports that:

Ernie Baur Retires - 9/3 - Ernie Baur, a veteran sports producer and director at WJLA, WUSA, WTTG, Home Team Sports, and now executive producer at Comcast SportsNet, is retiring this week. He was a copy boy for Sam Donaldson, directed Channel 7's "AM Washington" with Ed Walker, covered breaking news with Gordon Peterson, directed Glenn Brenner, Sonny Jurgensen, and Sam Huff, worked on the field for six national Super Bowl broadcasts, co-produced the "Warner Wolf Show," and gave birth to Wolf's signature "Let's go to the videotape" call.

Chuck Langdon and I interviewed Ernie on a show we do on Fairfax Cable called Out of the Past.

Ernie was the man Warner Wolf was speaking to when he first uttered his now famous signature trademark, "Let's go to the videotape!" The 14 local Emmy award winner discusses his long career, which began as a "copy boy" at WTOP-TV. Ernie is now the Executive Producer for Comcast Sports Net.
