Greenville Station Picks Replacement for Retiring Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

Nigel Robertson will join Carol Clarke as co-anchor of Greenville, S.C., station WYFF’s 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts in late November.

Robertson has been co-anchoring the 5 p.m. weekday newscast alongside Gabrielle Komorowski for more than a decade. He will take over for Michael Cogdill, who is retiring from the NBC affiliate after more than 33 years.

“Being named the newest 6 and 11 p.m. anchor on WYFF News 4 is a dream come true,” Robertson said. “When I came here almost 23 years ago, I had no idea the impact WYFF 4, Hearst Television, and this community would have on my life. I am so grateful for this opportunity and look forward to continuing the great tradition of excellence.”


Robertson joined WYFF in 1999 as a reporter before moving to the weekend anchor desk. He began his career at WTVG in Toledo, Ohio, and has also worked in Gainesville, Fla.

“Nigel has been a staple in this market for more than two decades,” said Akili Franklin, the news director for WYFF. “He has covered many significant local stories in our communities involving business, politics and racial injustice. His leadership and experience are important to our newsroom. Nigel is that relatable voice viewers will want to get their news from for years to come.”
