Emmy® Award-winning journalist Ted Greenberg covers the Jersey Shore region for NBC 4 New York. As a multi-media journalist, Ted takes pride in using his storytelling skills as a reporter, videographer and editor while covering New Jersey’s coastal region from Sandy Hook to Cape May. 

Throughout more than two decades of covering the Jersey Shore region, Hurricane Sandy remains one of the most memorable events in Ted’s career. More than ten years later, the superstorm’s lasting impact continues to create significant challenges for residents and communities alike. Ted is honored to be their voice and continues to ask the important questions that they want answered.

In 2023, Ted won New York and Mid-Atlantic Emmy® awards for his work as a multi-media journalist for both NBC4 New York and NBC10 Philadelphia. He also was honored as Broadcast Reporter of the Year by the New Jersey Society of Professional Journalists. In addition, Ted received NJ SPJ Excellence in Journalism awards for Best Television News Photographer, Best New York Television Coverage of New Jersey, and Best Philadelphia Television Coverage of New Jersey.

Ted’s reporting was a key component of NBC 4 New York’s award-winning COVID-19 coverage, honored in January, 2021 with the prestigious Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for “creat(ing) a 360 view in real time of the coronavirus pandemic, with courageous and thorough reporting on the virus’s explosion in New York City.” The duPont has long been recognized as the broadcast, documentary and on-line equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, also awarded by Columbia University.

Ted has been a part of the NBCUniversal family since 2003. He previously worked at WMGM-TV in Atlantic City while simultaneously pursuing a criminal justice degree at New Jersey’s Richard Stockton College (now Stockton University).
