A longtime New York City radio reporter was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment with a stab wound to his neck, police said.

Police have declared George Weber's death a homicide. His body was found Sunday after he failed to show up for work. Autopsy results were expected later Monday.

The 47-year-old Weber worked at WABC for 12 years as the on-air reporter for popular shows such as "Curtis and Kuby."

The station let him go amid programming changes last year. He had since worked as a freelancer for ABC News Radio, the national network. His last newscast was on March 15.

Weber previously worked at stations including KGO in San Francisco and KTLK and KMPC in Los Angeles.
