Henry Rosoff is a native of Scotch Plains, NJ, and spent much of his youth riding the train to the city. He is now thrilled to call Brooklyn home.

Rosoff comes to PIX11 by way of stations in Philadelphia, Seattle, Milwaukee and Waco, Texas.

He covered big stories across the county, from the Fort Hood shooting, to election night 2012 at Mitt Romney HQ, to the I-5 bridge collapse, to the recent Chelsea terror attack — along with every major storm and protest in between. However, it’s the stories where he managed to help people with everyday issues that meant the most.

Along the way Rosoff has been fortunate to win several regional awards including a few Emmys and Press Club honors (although he forgot to thank his girlfriend, now wife, for supporting him during his first acceptance speech… Sorry again about that!)

When not reporting the news, Rosoff enjoys running, smoking meats and keeping his two dogs, Violet and Jerry, out of trouble.
