Deli's sandwiches no longer a work of Art *

art-at-deli-grab.jpgArt Ginsburg is turning over the management of Art's Deli in Studio City to his daughter and son after 53 years That's pretty big news for fans of the Ventura Boulevard landmark, a hangout for TV and studio people and a regular campaign stop for politicos. But the story, at the AOL Patch site for Studio City, is interesting for another reason. It was reported by former KNBC 4 reporter Doug Kriegel. Yes, Kriegel is now listed as a Patch correspondent. He's looking to do his own video, but this time tapped some ex-colleagues from KNBC, Fernando Senosian and Craig Swanson. "I'll never equal the skills of people I worked with at KNBC," Kriegel tells me. "But I can sort of get the job done." Since retiring from Channel 4 last October, Kriegel has also done some freelance reporting for a station in Santa Barbara.

* Fixed: I garbled Kriegel's message. He didn't shoot and edit this video, but hopes to do some on how own going forward. So I made some edits up above.

Add Patch Studio City: Actor Ed Begley does an environmental column for the site.
