Rosato also worked as an anchor for 50,000 watt 1010 WINS Radio in New York City, and was News Director and main anchor at 50,000 watt WBLI-FM/Long Island (where he was known as "Ken Rhodes") and WLNY-TV/New York (now owned by CBS).

Rosato also has experience as a Top 40 radio host, and has worked at such stations as WVIP-FM 106.3, Mount Kisco, NY; WSPK-FM "K-104.7", Poughkeepsie, NY; and WFLY-FM "Fly-92" in Albany, NY.

The Transition from Reporter to Anchor at WABC-TV

On the morning of July 6, 2007, it was announced that Rosato would be joining Lori Stokes and Bill Evans on Eyewitness News This Morning and Eyewitness News at Noon.

Rosato only began to regularly fill in at the anchor desk on June 4, 2007. According to the New York Daily News, "Of all the reporters and anchors that have sat in during the four month trial period, Rosato stands out from the rest when he sits next to Lori." WABC-TV's managers also commented that Rosato would replace Bartelstein exactly four months to the date of Bartelstein's last newscast for Channel 7. Rosato successfully competed against a number of different reporters, including weekend morning anchors Michelle Charlesworth, Phil Lipof and his fellow morning colleague Lisa Colagrossi. WABC-TV also stated that Mr. Rosato "provided the most journalistic credibility".[3]

Rosato officially assumed the role of morning and noon anchor on July 9, 2007, although he has filled-in since July 5.

Rosato has also reported since inheriting the role of noon anchor. On Thursday, July 19, 2007, Mr. Rosato reported on the 5 and 6 p.m. editions of Eyewitness News about the Steam Pipe Explosion in New York City for which he won an Emmy Award.

On Thursday, April 29, 2010 it was announced that Rosato would return to Eyewitness News This Morning that day after being on leave for 3 weeks following surgery to remove a non-functional kidney. [4]
