Michelle Kosinski (b. 1974 in Cinnaminson, New Jersey) is a correspondent for NBC News.[1]

She began work in broadcast journalism in Rockford, Illinois for WIFR while earning her BA and MA from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. Leaving WIFR, she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina at WSOC-TV and founded the Piedmont Bureau. In 2001, she was voted the Best Reporter in Charlotte. In Fall of 2001, she left WSOC-TV for WTVJ in Miami. She is a 2003 Suncoast Regional Emmy Awards Craft Winner for reporting on Haitian immigrants.[2] She was also named Woman of the Year in 2005 by Women in Communications of South Florida.

Stories covered


In 2005, Kosinski made Rolling Stone Magazine's Hot List, as "hot reporter." [1]

In August 2005, while covering the Natalee Holloway disappearance in Aruba, NBC arranged an interview with the director of Aruban prisons and a tour of suspect Joran van der Sloot's prison. During the tour, she ran into van der Sloot and conducted an off-camera interview. Prison director Fred Maduro appeared live on MSNBC and admitted that he offered her the tour. After Van der Sloot's attorneys called for a hearing on the matter, NBC declined to air the footage.[3]

Kosinksi was once criticized for a report in Wayne, New Jersey. Her live report for the Today show showed her paddling a canoe, as though she were in deep flood waters. "It's really tough to control a canoe or a boat when you're out in it," she said as two men walked between Kosinski's canoe and the live camera, showing that the water was only ankle deep. Later, it was revealed that people were indeed using boats to get through the streets, and the men were wearing chest waders. The crew had set up the shot where people were putting their boats into the rushing floodwaters, for safety. Most of the criticism of Kosinski came from conservative bloggers, angered that NBC on that same day had exposed the Bush administration for "planting" questioners in the audience of a speech.

In 2009, Kosinski purchased a 5.6 million dollar, 12,000-square-foot home in Coral Gables, Florida. [2]
