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.
Since his arrival at NBC10, Rosenfield has traveled the world to cover major stories with local impact on the Delaware Valley, including extensive reporting in anticipation of the visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia in September, 2015. Rosenfield visited the Pope’s homeland of Argentina and spoke with childhood friends, former colleagues and Penn students studying in Buenos Aires about the man known there as Father Jorge Bergoglio. Rosenfield anchored and reported in a 30-minute special, “The People’s Pope” upon his return from South America.
Rosenfield was the only local anchor to report live from Paris, France within 24 hours of the terror attacks there in November, 2015, and has also reported from Israel during ongoing conflicts between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza.
Here at home, Rosenfield moderated an eventful debate live from The Kimmel Center for the Democratic primary for Mayor of Philadelphia in April, 2015, and has also served as a debate moderator in the primary race for U.S Senate in New Jersey.
On a lighter note, Rosenfield anchored live team coverage on NBC10 of the Wawa Welcome America! Festival, the Blue Cross Broad Street Run and was happy to be part of NBC10’s effort to "Clear the Shelters" of pets in need of adoption in the region.
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.
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 as a reporter for WTVD in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. He later moved on to anchor and reporting positions at KTRK in Houston, Texas and WLS in Chicago, Illinois.
Supporting organizations focused on people with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges is one of Rosenfield's passions. When he's not working, Jim enjoys views of the world from behind the lens as an amateur photographer (check out his Instagram!) and modestly refers to himself as an "average tennis enthusiast."
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.
