Put parts of cell into separate columns

For each cell in Col A, how do I put:

the beginning characters [up to the first space (" ")] into Col B
the last 4 characters into Col C
the other characters into Col D.

Here is a sample of my spreadsheet:

A
3ABN Three Angels Broadcasting Network 9393
ABCF ABC Family 180
AHC American Heroes Channel 195
ALIVE America Live 219

The result should be:

B C D
3ABN Three Angels Broadcasting Network 9393
ABCF ABC Family 180
AHC American Heroes Channel 195
ALIVE America Live 219

AHC American Heroes Channel 195
ALIVE America Live 219

you have trailing spaces in column A. If you first delete the trailing
space with Text to Columns you can use
in B1: =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)-1)
in D1: =TRIM(RIGHT(A1,4))
in C1: =TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,B1,),D1,))

If you don't want to delete the trailing space change the formula in D1
to: =TRIM(RIGHT(TRIM(A1),4))

I've changed "the ending characters..." line:

For each cell in Col A, how do I put:

the beginning characters [up to the first space (" ")] into Col B
the ending characters [after the last space (" ")] into Col C
the other characters into Col D.

(I do want to delete the trailing spaces).
