Jim Rosenfield anchors the weekend editions of News4 at 6 and News4 at 11.
Rosenfield is a veteran journalist who spent 10 years anchoring at WNBC and WCBS in New York prior to joining News4. While there, Rosenfield covered some of the biggest stories in history. His reports in the aftermath of 9/11 earned him numerous accolades, including the first Father Mychal Judge award from the New York Press Club.
He also received an EMMY award for his coverage of Cory Lidle’s plane crash in 2006 and was lauded by the New York press corps for his anchoring of breaking news coverage of Governor Elliot Spitzer’s resignation.
Rosenfield’s journalism career began at WTVD in Raleigh-Durham while he was still a student at Duke University. He was rewarded for his hard work with a full-time job as a general assignment reporter there. He became weekend anchor shortly afterward, then jumped to KTRK in Houston and WLS in Chicago, where he was an anchor and reporter for nearly a decade.
Rosenfield has close family ties to the Washington area, as his wife, a former television producer, grew up in Maryland. They have two children.
