Kevin Corke is joining WTVJ NBC6 as an anchor/reporter, replacing Julia Yarbough who left the station rand the TV news business recently. Corke posted a message on his Facebook page confirming the news:
FINALLY GOT A JOB! I am the new main anchor at WTVJ (NBC) in Miami. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and prayers throughout. Come see me in South Florida

Corke has covered the White House and Presidential races for NBC, anchored NBC Nightly News, the Today Show and briefly MSNBC post-election ’08 coverage.
Prior to joining NBC Corke anchored ESPN Sports Center and before that he was the morning and weekend news anchor at KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver, Colorado.
According to his Wikipedia page, Corke holds a Master’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder and a Master’s degree from the Harvard Kennedy School.
Kevin Corke will be alongside Joe Rose and Jackie Nespral starting in January 2010.
