New prescription for WPIX
Is there a doctor in the house? At WPIX New York, the answer is yes. Syndicated-TV medical reporter Dr. Michael Rosen is joining the Tribune station as an in-studio contributor.
Rosen is already a familiar face in New York and other markets. A former medical reporter for WCBS New York, he left the station in 2003 to create a syndicated feed for his medical report, “Daily Health Feed,” produced out of his midtown-Manhattan office and distributed by Litton to more than 50 TV stations.
