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.
