WJZ Loses Beloved Photographer

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — There’s some sad news about one of our beloved photographers, Bob Bergschneider.

He passed away Thursday morning, leaving us with memories of his commitment to news and his dry sense of humor.

Bob, whose nickname was “Berg,” always greeted us with a warm “Hi ya, kiddo.”

Berg photographed many of the stories you’ve watched over the years, and was the only Baltimore photographer to cover Desert Storm during the war.

Our prayers go out to Bob’s family and his many friends. He will be missed.

    What a loss. He was one of the classiest of the old time photogs. My sympathies to all his co-workers who will miss him greatly, I’m sure.

  2. Michael Schwartzberg says:

    Wow, what a loss for the WJZ family and Baltimore news in general. What I’ll always remember about Berg is he always wanted to make sure I had a free parking pass for him whenever he came to GBMC to cover a story …always asking “hey Mike, what do I do about this parking ticket…..”🙂

    i read about this in the spfld., ill. online paper. bobby bergschneider lived down the street from me when i was growing up. he was, like nobody our age i knew, a natural leader. all he had to do to take command of a gathering was to enter it. he had the greates backyward for playing in the entire neighborhood, too.

    Thanks to everyone who has left postings here and elsewhere and those who were at his funeral. He would have been humbled and amused at your wonderful stories and memories.
    Bob, as you can imagine, fought a very hard fight against a fast-moving cancer he could not conquer. He is at peace now.
    …. and we move forward, a little emptier but richer for having known and loved him.
