Veteran journalist Jim Rosenfield joined NBC10 in 2013. He came to Philadelphia from WRC in Washington, D.C., where he was a weekend anchor and reporter. A two-time Emmy winner, Rosenfield can be seen co-anchoring NBC10 News weekdays at 4 PM, 6 PM and 11 PM.
In his years at WRC, Rosenfield was an integral part of the station’s team coverage of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. He covered the Paula Broadwell/General Petraeus story as it broke and was part of the live team coverage of President Obama's second inauguration in January, where he reported throughout the event from the presidential reviewing stand on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Before WRC, Rosenfield was in New York, where he served as an evening anchor/reporter for WNBC and later WCBS. He was the recipient of two Emmys and was honored with the first Father Mychal Judge Award from the New York Press Club for his coverage of the aftermath of 9/11. He was also recognized by the New York press for his anchoring of breaking news coverage of Governor Elliot Spitzer’s resignation.
A 30-year veteran of broadcast journalism, Rosenfield got his start in 1981 as reporter for WTVD in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, where he eventually became weekend anchor. He later moved on to anchor positions at KTRK in Houston, Texas and WLS in Chicago, Illinois.
Rosenfield holds a B.A. in English from Duke University, where he also served as a 2011 Alumni Fellow in the university's Office of Public Affairs & Government Relations. He lives with his wife and two children in Center City.
