Longtime CBS News KYW-A/PHILADELPHIA sportscaster PHIL NEUMAN exits the station after 21 years, according to the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER's MICHAEL KLEIN, who reports that NEUMAN left the station complaining of "micromanagement" from PD STEVE BUTLER.
NEUMAN told KLEIN that the issue came to a head on APRIL 2 when, he alleges, BUTLER ordered him to lead the sportscast with a PHILLIES exhibition game instead of more important SIXERS and FLYERS late-season games. NEUMAN owns a real estate management company in NEW JERSEY.
