Victor Miles Levy, Jr. (November 7, 1931 – October 12, 2011), known professionally as Vic Miles, was an American reporter and news anchor for WCBS-TV from 1971 until his retirement in 1995. Educated at City College of New York, he served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. Prior to his job with WCBS-TV, he had previously worked as a news director and disc jockey for radio station WHOA in Puerto Rico from 1956 to 1966, and a reporter and anchor with KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh from 1966 to 1971.[1]

Miles' primary responsibilities at WCBS were as a reporter and anchor of the station's weekend news broadcasts, but he was also a substitute anchor on the weekday broadcasts and also was Rolland Smith's co-anchor of the 11 PM newscast for a brief period in the 1970s.
