WTVJ Promotes Sports Reporter to Main Anchor

WTVJ announced today that Adam Kuperstein will join Jackie Nespral as anchor of the NBC station’s 5, 6, and 11 p.m. newscasts.

Kuperstein, who has been with WTVJ since 2005, has transitioned to the news desk over the last several months while serving as the station’s weekend sports anchor and weekday sports reporter.  For the past six years, he has also co-hosted WTVJ’s Sunday night sports show.

“This is an incredible honor for me,” Kuperstein said. “I am excited to have the opportunity to come into our viewers’ homes in this new role and look forward to informing and serving the South Florida community for many years.”

Before joining WTVJ, Kuperstein served as the weekend sports anchor at Toledo Fox-affiliate WUPW.  Prior to that, he was the weekend sports anchor at WHIZ, the NBC-affiliate in Zanesville, OH.

In December, Kuperstein began anchoring WTVJ’s weekend morning newscasts.

In addition to Kuperstein’s promotion, WTVJ announced two other staff moves today.  Trina Robinson is moving from the station’s 11 a.m. newscast to anchor the news at 5:30 p.m., and morning anchor Pam Giganti will add the 11 a.m. newscast to her list of duties.

“I am delighted to announce these expanded roles for three individuals so dedicated and passionate about what they do,” WTVJ president and general manager Manuel Martinez said, announcing the moves.  “These changes to our anchor line-up will continue to position NBC 6 in line to serve our community and our viewers.”
