(from WTVJ.com) – After almost 20 years of sports broadcasting at NBC 6 South Florida/WTVJ, Joe Rose is signing off from television at the end of this year.
“Joe has covered Super Bowls, the Heat’s NBA Championships, the Marlins’ World Series Championships, the Hurricanes’ National Championships and his beloved Miami Dolphins, all with his insightful and unique charm,” said Larry Olevitch, NBC 6 President and General Manager. “We are grateful to Joe’s commitment to NBC 6 and our viewers and we will be sure to celebrate his tenure at the station later this year with a special send-off.”
Rose has been doing double duty in broadcasting, as sportscaster and sports analyst for NBC 6, hosting his own sports talk show on local sports radio for the past 20 years and as a member of the Dolphins radio broadcast team.
“It’s time for me to slow down and get a decent night’s sleep!” said Rose. “It’s been a fun ride and I’ve been able to cover a lot of major sporting events that I never could have if it wasn’t for NBC 6.”….Cont….
