Did he turn up at another station. Hope he straightened himself out. I did like him as a news anchor. Don't really care what he did in his off time.
Here's the wiki rundown on his post WABC career:
On March 14, 2007, the Daily News reported that Bartelstein had been "fired" from WABC-TV after "sleeping through a newsbreak he was to anchor". The Daily News article also reported that WABC-TV had previously suspended him several times for persistent tardiness.
On November 7, 2007, Mediaweek reported that WCBS-TV had announced that it had hired Bartelstein as a weekend news anchor. The station soon began airing promotional announcements featuring him and making reference to an upcoming feature story about his cancer illness.
On March 18, 2009, WCBS-TV announced that he had left the station. Bartelstein told the Daily News that he was unhappy and felt unappreciated with his job.
On August 12, 2010, it was announced that he would be joining WBBM-TV in Chicago as a morning-news anchor
On July 3, 2011, it was announced that he left WBBM after only 10 months.
Wasn't he also hauled into court for his (non-professional) peeping Tom proclivities?
r8, Steve lived at 100 Bank Street, aimed laser pointer into bedroom window of guy he liked at 99 Bank.
Ask Bill Evans
Two of my friends slept with him. He did love Tina and they both commented on his beer can cock but he liked it up the ass.
How could he be on TV or radio with that AWFUL voice?
He "wasn't appreciated"? With a voice like that he was lucky to get a broadcast media job in the first place!
There's a rumor about him not showing up for work at Ch 2 Chicago because he was on a bender and had spent the night pulling a train at Steamworks.
His lizard-like tongue looks like it will shoot out any second.
Chicago, being, well CHICAGO, was the perfect city for that loser. He couldn't even hack that though.
He lasted ten months at WBBM. He was out the door in July 2011.
Poor Stevie! Where is he now?
Isn't he in Palm Springs?
oh wait, that was some other gay Chicago anchor mary.
