Investigative Reporter Rob Koebel Moves from Fort Myers to Milwaukee

Investigative reporter Rob Koebel is joining Milwaukee’s WTMJ.

The NBC-affiliate announced today that Koebel, who received a Murrow award during his time with Fort Myers Fox-affiliate WFTX, would join the station later this month.

The move is essentially a promotion by Journal Broadcast Group, which owns both WTMJ and WFTX.

“Rob has been a strong watchdog of government agencies for the viewer. We are excited to have him as a strong member of our investigative unit,” said Journal’s vice president of news Bill Berra, in making the announcement. “His work for us in Ft. Myers has been extraordinary.”

Koebel began his career in 1995 at the CBS-affiliate in Clarksburg, WV. He went on to make stops in Boise and Phoenix before joining WFTX in 2009.

“I can’t wait to get started,” Koebel said of his new job.

Here’s a recent WFTX report from Koebel:
