Fred Kerber (Sportswriter. Born, Jersey City, NJ, Aug. 12, 1952.) Following several years at the Daily News, during which he worked cityside re-write and covered such high-profile beats as federal courts and police headquarters, Frederick Vincent Kerber transitioned into sports. Kerber was a beat writer on the Islanders, Nets, Knicks, and Mets, as well as serving as the third baseball writer backing up on the Yankees. After 16 years at the News (1974-90), he moved to the Post, where he has primarily covered the N.B.A., first on the Knicks and then on the Nets. Kerber started his career while at St. Peter’s College, writing for the old Hudson Dispatch and the Jersey Journal. His son, John Kerber, works in the Mets public relations department.
