Editor’s note: There’s no truth to the rumor that Bernie’s 48 Hours attire (pictured above) was inspired by journalist Mike Donovan from the 1980’s NBC hit mini-series, “V.” 😉

Surprise Special: Classic Goldberg- 48 Hours On Crack Street Part 1

This was groundbreaking TV Journalism that first aired in 1986 by CBS News

And it was my first major reporting assignment on prime time television …

None of us who reported this story — the introduction of crack cocaine into our culture — wrote a script. There were no voice overs, also known as narration. Just real life action unfolding before our eyes, and the viewers’ eyes — in some scary places around New York City.

Hope you enjoy.


Note: We will be releasing this in a 3 part series. Please check back often. Remember you can subscribe to updates by clicking this link.
