Death of a Newsman

The NYC papers have been running the story of the death of former NYC radio personality and newsman George Weber. Weber was a regular part of the Curtis and Kuby show that got better NYC ratings than the Imus show. Sadly as it was NYC focused it had no appeal outside NYC.

Weber apparently contacted the killer via Craigs list. The internet is a dangerous place and all types of lunatics are out there. It is true that Weber may have been attempting to pay the younger
man for rough sex, but he didn't deserve to die.

In NYC this is around the third episode of internet dates ending up deadly. Perhaps people should think about trying to meet people through friends.

I've been fortunate that the people I have met via the internet have certainly not been out to kill me (well not initially anyway!). He did not deserve that death - who does? but it is a reminder to take care

How could a newsman not know the dangers of the Internet?

I heard about this.

You're right about there being no short supply of lunatics out there... And deviants.

He was a numbskull who provided cocaine to a sixteen year old avowed Satanist and sadist, and then allowed him to tie him up. No, he didn't deserve to die, but he was sure as hell asking for it. Had to be a death wish in there somewhere.

Weber was a good man all of us should be careful.


Weber had a dark side. He was a good man. It is sad his life ended like this.


You are correct. Perhaps he was safe by meeting him at his home. He
did not deserve to die.


Sad but true


I am amazed the details of this story made it out to your area. I was under the impression this was strictly local.

I read about it on the blog Red Alerts, which is a true crime blog. You should read it, you would probably like it.
