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.

Tina=crystal meth.

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.

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.
