Adam Kuperstein is an award-winning journalist who anchors NBC 4 New York’s 11 AM and 5PM daily newscasts from the station’s 30 Rockefeller Center studios. He moved into his current role following three years as a weekend anchor and weekday general assignment reporter for the station.
Kuperstein has covered many of the Tri-State’s most memorable news stories throughout his time at WNBC. The first local television reporter to report live from the scene of December 2019’s deadly Jersey City shootout, Kuperstein described the unfolding events in real-time during breaking news coverage. Kuperstein’s reporting was recognized through two Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards presented to WNBC for “Breaking News Coverage” and “Team Coverage.”
In February 2018, Kuperstein covered the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, spending several days on the ground covering the response and community impact. One month later, he again spoke with Marjory Stoneman victims, their families and student supporters from the Tri-State at the “March for our Lives” rally in Washington, D.C. Later that year, Kuperstein covered the deadly anti-Semitic attack at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, speaking with members of the Steel City’s faith community and interviewing Tri-State officials attending the Squirrel Hill memorial service.
Kuperstein has also covered Hurricanes Irma and Dorian in Florida, the deadly Trump Tower inferno in Manhattan and was awarded a New York Emmy® for anchoring team coverage of the January 4, 2018 Tri-State blizzard.
Prior to arriving in New York, Kuperstein worked as a weekday news and sports anchor for NBC6 / WTVJ in South Florida for more than a decade. At WTVJ, Kuperstein covered three presidential elections and reported from the 2012 presidential debate at Lynn University. He also led the station’s sports coverage, including live reports from the 2016 Rio Olympics.
