Joe Rose will be hanging up his sports anchor gig hat after 22 years at WTVJ! He’s retiring. From television anyway.
Rose has been a part of the NBC 6 Sports team for 22 years, having joined in 1992. He told NBC 6 he decided it’s time for him to “slow down and get a decent night’s sleep!”. He’s been pulling double duty for more than a decade hosting his own morning radio show on WQAM from 6 to 10am on weekdays, which as you might imagine doesn’t leave a lot of room for sleep.
WTVJ President and General Manager Larry Olevitch says a special send-off is in the works. Joe Rose’ last day on the air at WTVJ NBC6 will be sometime in December.
