Phil Latzman's Summary

I'm an award-winning digital journalist and broadcast professional who has spent over two decades covering both news and sports on a multitude of platforms. I began my career in New York during the talk radio revolution, and moved to Florida to tell the stories of The Sunshine State to the rest of the nation and world.

Most recently and for the past decade, I served as morning news anchor and reporter for the WLRN and The Miami Herald’s groundbreaking radio operation, and was host and creator of WLRN's renowned weekly public affairs program, The Florida Roundup.

I've interviewed some of the world's most interesting people from political circles to the entertainment world, while hosting a variety of talk shows, ranging from hard news to sports.

My work has been honored numerous times by the Florida Associated Press and Society of Professional Journalists for my newscasts, and for feature reporting on such topics as elections, Cuba, hurricanes and sports. I'm also a Florida network correspondent covering everything from hurricanes to politics for NPR and other national media outlets.

Prior to coming to the WLRN, I was sports director for WIOD and WINZ, where I hosted a nightly sports-talk show and anchored coverage of Miami Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes and Miami Heat broadcasts. Mine was the first voice heard on WQAM when it became South Florida’s first all-sports radio station in 1992.

I'm a New York native who spent his formative years in broadcasting at at WABC Radio, where I served as Assistant Production Director, responsible for producing, editing and screening various talk shows, including Rush Limbaugh. I also produced New York Yankees baseball broadcasts.

While in the Big Apple, I had a stint at NBC Sports, assisting talent such as Bob Costas and Marv Albert on the networks’ NFL football and Major League Baseball coverage.

I am married and live in Hollywood, Florida with my fantastic wife Jill. We are proud parents of Mitchell and Marisa.
