Yes, Jan 1.,2001.

Whatever his reasons were he was certainly didn't get over-worked
at WMEX(in and out of the office with the sunrise/sunset).
The station still has no ratings to show for and the advertising
market going very soft all of sudden is not a good sign for 1060.

I don't think Berryhill was ever a GM at WHDH. I am pretty sure Mike
Carson was(and still is) the GM at 7 when Berryhill worked as a
News Director there.

Berryhill will only focus on developing station's news programming,
not managing Young Broadcasting's new acquisition. Going to a bigger market
and retooling an entire news dept. for an established station sounds like
a real challenge.
