Jim Rosenfield, a veteran anchor who made his mark in New York with WNBC and WCBS, is joining WRC in Washington, D.C. The NBC-owned station announced today that Rosenfield is coming on board as a weekend anchor.
“Jim is a talented anchor and reporter, but more importantly, he’s an all-around good guy,” said Camille Edwards, WRC’s vice president of news, announcing the move. “I’ve known him for almost 20 years, and I am so happy to be working with him again. He is a perfect addition to our winning news team.”
Rosenfield spent a decade working as a reporter and anchor in New York, first at WCBS, then at WNBC, then back at WCBS, where he replaced Ernie Anastos on the station’s evening newscasts. He signed off from WCBS for good in May of 2008.

Rosenfield worked at KTRK in Houston and WLS in Chicago before moving to New York.
“I am thrilled to be joining WRC and returning to the NBC family,” Rosenfield said. “This is an exciting time to be in the nation’s capital, and I look forward to working with one of the strongest, most respected television news teams in the country.”
