Jeff Rossen (born November 13, 1976) is an American television journalist who is employed by NBC News. He joined the network in September 2008. Rossen contributes to all NBC News programs and platforms, including NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, and Today. Rossen also fills in at the anchor desk for Weekend Today and MSNBC.

Early life and education

Rossen was born in Hauppauge, New York and is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.


In 2012, Rossen was named National Investigative Correspondent. He will lead a new investigative unit titled "Rossen Reports." According to an NBC News press release, Rossen's investigations will appear on all platforms, including Today, NBC Nightly News, and Dateline NBC.

Prior to his promotion, Rossen landed a now legendary interview with actor Charlie Sheen in February, 2011. The interview made international headlines, not only for its content, but also because Rossen stole the exclusive from ABC News. During his time at NBC News, Rossen has also covered the David Goldman kidnapping case -- traveling with the American dad to Brazil, the Death of Michael Jackson, and an exclusive interview with the owner of "Travis the Chimp" in the Connecticut Chimp Attack.

Rossen left WABC-TV at the end of May 2008, seven years after he joined the station. He has covered news segments such as the crash of TWA Flight 800 and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, the New York City Olympic Bid in Singapore, Ronald Reagan's death, London Terrorist Attack, among others. He hosted a weekly segment on Eyewitness News called "What's Bugging You?"

Rossen worked as a reporter at WUTR-TV, the ABC affiliate in Utica, New York. He also worked in Syracuse, New York at ABC affiliate WIXT-TV, and at Fox affiliate WJBK-TV in Detroit before coming to WABC-TV in May 2001. He was unflatteringly featured doing a report on the death of Kayla Rolland, a first grader at Buell Elementary School, in Michael Moore's documentary, Bowling for Columbine.[1]

In 2007, Rossen began reporting for ABC News Magazines, debuting on i-Caught on ABC.

On August 18, 2008, Rossen added an Instrument Rating to his Private Pilot certificate from the FAA. This fact was revealed when he filed a NBC Nightly News report on February 14, 2009 regarding the crash of Continental Airlines Flight #3407 and was corroborated by the FAA Airmen Certification database.
