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.
View from behind the anchors of WPLG’s new set. Staring at norhing but a lense, well teleprompter really. It’s a bit like they are talking to themselves no?

Ten years ago comedienne Joan Rivers took a ride in the 10 Taxi, one of our favorite features on Local 10 back then. Rivers was in town for a special event, she was being inducted on the Jackie Gleason theater walk of stars, and in between went for a ride in the Marathon checker cab with reporter Todd Tongen at the wheel. She talked about her act, cracked some jokes, and shared her secret to success.
We’d love to see Channel 10 post the unedited version of this
