Kim Bokamper Set to Retire from WFOR

1

After 14 years covering sports for WFOR, sports anchor Kim Bokamper is calling it quits. The former Dolphins player says he’s retiring from the TV biz to spend more time with his daughters, and to take some time to travel and see the world.

In an announcement released by the station, Bokamper says “I will miss the people that I’ve worked with in the sports community, I’ll also miss the excitement of covering the sports scene here in South Florida, which has been such a big part of my life for as long as I can remember.”

Bokamper has covered sports for WFOR since 2000 when he joined as the Sunday through Thursday sports anchor for the 5, 6, and 11 pm newscasts. He is the second high-profile sportscaster in Miami to retire, NBC 6 sports director Joe Rose is set to sign off from WTVJ this month.

Bokamper’s last day at WFOR will be sometime in January.

  1. Kim Bokamper is a Pro who knows Local Football Inside and Out. I hope the move is 100% his own and not another local TV Management “Bone-Head” move to save money on a much cheaper, less-qualified and younger-perkier sports reader. Miami TV Sports Departments are under increasing pressure to cut back and are NOT being given much Station Management support these days….meaning budget cuts, decreased air time and staff reductions. Again, I hope Kims’ decision was 100% his own and he deserves nothing but the best in whatever he chooses next for himself and his family.
