David Rose's Greetings From Seattle

Former Ch.9 reporter-anchor David Rose sent this e-mail to say he just started as a reporter/weekend anchor at KCPQ-TV, Fox 13:

"Yes, I'm in Seattle. I've already started reporting. My first night anchoring will be Friday. Here is a copy of the release that went out last night."


SeattleJuly 16, 2007 – A new face has joined Q13 FOX News as weekend anchor and reporter. David Rose joins the Q13 FOX news team from Cincinnati, OH and will anchor the weekend broadcast and report three days a week.

Rose brings a wide range of newsroom experience to Seattle. He spent the last five years as an anchor and managing editor of Good Morning Tri-State at WCPO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Cincinnati. He was recently voted winner of the 2007 Ohio Associated Press Broadcasters Best Anchor Award.

"David not only anchored the 5-7 am newscasts in Cincinnati, but also worked a split-shift, coming back to anchor the #1 rated 5:30 pm newscasts each day," said Q13 FOX News Director Steve Kraycik. "That kind of commitment to journalism and broadcast news will be great for our viewers and our community."

Prior to Cincinnati, Rose worked as special projects reporter and anchor at KCOP-TV in Los Angeles. He received prestigious "Golden Mic" awards for his investigation into city buses caught on camera running red lights and breaking news coverage of the riots following a Los Angeles Lakers championship game.

From 1996 to 1998 Rose worked as weekend host and senior correspondent for the syndicated television show EXTRA. He covered the O.J. Simpson civil trial as well as numerous entertainment news stories.

He also served as 10 pm anchor at Boston’s WFXT-TV and launched Good Day Chicago on Fox owned WFLD-TV in the 1993. Rose holds a bachelor's degree in broadcast news from Southern Methodist University.

Sounds like he landed in a great city, if not the best newsroom in it.

how interesting that david rose has found a new job in a bigger market in less time than it took channel 9 to fill his position

I'm glad David was able to land on his feet. He sure is missed.

Congrats on your new job in Seattle! I miss waking up to your smiling face each morning on Channel 9. It's not the same without you.

John: What do you think the chances that Heartland will be renewed. I like the show well enough. I'm just tired of getting into shows and then they are cancelled. I feel like I'm wasting my time. Thanks!

How sad for us, but how great for David Rose! I had hoped he would find a station in the Cincy/Dayton area! Best of luck to him!

I assume he did not include his "i'm overly tired" editions on his resume tape that left him without a job in Cincinnati.

John, any word if WKRC-TV will televise the Bengals pre-season games in HD? I see the NFL Network is picking up the feed of the Bengals-Colts game on Aug. 31 and NFL Network is HD. I was curious if KRC would HD the game.

are you seriously so naive that you bought the problem with his medicine excuse for him leaving Ch.9? You obviously never viewed his last day on the air, or did you? I hate to kick a guy if he's down, but the guy was a total loser and brought down our newsroom.

Kind of pompous to send out your own press release but typical of the self-absorbed people that get TV work. The guy they brought back does a better job anyway.

Agree. Brian Patrick is truly a breath of fresh air in the early am news. David Rose and that silly little laugh of his was goofy, even when he did not slur the laugh!!

at 7/20/2007 4:04 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Talking about goofy?!? How about Bob Herzog over on channel 12??!

Drives me CRAZY in the morning!! ONe thing about Ch.5, at least Pete Scalia is calm and collected when he's giving the traffic reports!! (if you can put up with LIsa's perkiness)

I read in our church bulletin that Brian Patrick will be hosting the new local morning program on WNOP starting in September.

at 7/20/2007 7:28 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

to anon at 4:04. Yes, Bob Herzog has to go. He acts like a silly clown without the suit. More Denise Johnson--- soooooo hot!! Very pleasant to look at early in the morning even if television traffic is useless and a waste of time. How about Mary McConnel saying baaaaaaaaaaaaack up on I 75. That horrible midwest twang!

David Rose is a magnanimous journalist, writer ,and on air talent treasured in any market... not to mention a wonderful person off camera!

Mary McConnell and a "Midwestern twang"???

Ummmm, you are talking about Mary Kuzan from PHILADELPHIA. No twang there!

I am suprised that Davids last newscast has not ended up of YOUTUBE.

at 7/25/2007 4:12 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Congratulations, David! Too bad things didn't work out at Channel 9. GMTS is too serious without you. No one has the same chemistry with Katherine Nero!

Let's recap:

Managing Editor of Good Morning Tri-State

Winner of the 2007 Ohio Associated Press Broadcasters Best Anchor Award

Good chunk of the reason why the 5:30 PM newscast was # for WCPO.

Letting the man go that had probably worked harder than any anchor at WCPO=STUPID!!!

Thanks for the update John. I'm glad to see David landed on his feet.

well, when you slur your words and say it was the prescription meds? Right David!!!

I really liked watching David Rose in the morning here in Cincy, he actually showed a bit of his personality and was one of the few who did not speak and report like a machine. He was so refreshing to watch, sometimes twice a day! I don't know of many anchors with that kind of dedication. I no longer watch channel 9.
