Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The Marlins beat Philadelphia 8-5 last Saturday and the crowd was plenty euphoric. But around the seventh inning, when the CBS 4 promo for Jim Berry's Sports Wrap came on the jumbotron, it got downright giddy. We know it's on television as well, but in case you haven't seen the ridiculous ad, it appears its producers were inspired by the Andy Samberg school of rap. The video shows Berry walking through the halls of the station's office, giving shoutouts to his co-workers while praising his show's coverage of sports. On his network bio Berry describes his hidden talent as "Dancing ballroom style," but we think he could be the next Rick Ross. -- Emily Witt

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
