Ted Koppel’s Son Dies After Drinking Binge

- By Bossip Staff

Andrew Koppel, the son of Television news anchor, Ted Koppel, has died at the age of 40, BOSSIP has learned:

The son of legendary TV newsman Ted Koppel was found dead in a Washington Heights apartment under mysterious circumstances yesterday morning after a daylong drinking binge with a man he had just met in a Midtown bar, law-enforcement sources said. Andrew Koppel, 40, of Rockaway Park, Queens, was declared dead at around 1:30 a.m. after paramedics were called to the rundown apartment in what a law-enforcement source called a “s- – – building” on 180th Street at Audubon Avenue, where he had been found unconscious and not breathing in a bedroom, the sources said.

Koppel — who was an attorney for the city Housing Authority — was a slobbering mess when he was brought to the apartment at around 11 p.m. by Russell Wimberly, a 32-year-old waiter he had met at a Hell’s Kitchen bar nearly 12 hours earlier.

Damn, sounds like he was going through something, our thoughts and prayers are with the Koppel family. R.I.P.
