Robert Kovacik is a native of Cleveland, Ohio and is a nationally recognized television news media industry leader with directorial credits and expertise in investigative journalism. The multi-Emmy award-winning and nominated journalist currently anchors and reports for NBC's affiliate station in Los Angeles (NBC-4).
Kovacik's viewership often extends nationally through simulcasts on MSNBC. The recognized television personality is known for his versatility as a reporter and field correspondent, as well as his editorial news coverage, which spans across hard, soft and technical genres. Before joining the second largest media market in the United States, the Brown University and Columbia University School of Journalism alumnus worked for several prominent news media outlets.
Having been elected to a maximum three-term Presidency of the Los Angeles Press Club, a nearly 500-member organization serving journalists throughout Southern California, Kovacik is widely recognized as a professional resource and liaison between news and entertainment media professionals, and respective industry executives. The journalist also claims the illustrious distinction of having been hired as the youngest television news person to anchor a station in the largest market in the United States (New York City) when he was named an anchor for NIGHTWORLD, a PBS member station (WNET), at age 23.
Among his eclectic career highlights on the West Coast, Kovacik was recruited by the National Geographic Society to serve as a West Coast correspondent, anchor, and the bureau chief of its newly formed television division-The National Geographic Channel. As the first person to serve in this capacity for the Society, Kovacik reporting ultimately reached a worldwide audience in his post as the inaugural host of National Geographic Today, a nightly news program.
Beyond his professional responsibilities, the newscaster's career-long social and environmental activism and stewardship has served the greater good and contributed to the well-being of human and animal kind. He has touched lives in Southern California and where ever he has lived and traveled to.
