Veteran news anchor Ken Rosato has been in the limelight lately for his alleged ‘off-color’ remark on co-anchor Shirleen Allicot. After 20 years at ABC7 New York, he was immediately dismissed from the station after the incident. And now the former anchor is spending time with his other half as they celebrate their anniversary. Ken Rosato’s husband, Chris Sobel, posted a photo of the pair on social media, which caught ABC7 viewers’ attention. So, we reveal more about Ken Rosato’s husband, Chris Sobel, in this wiki.

Chris Sobel’s Family

Chris Sobel was born on June 25, 1979, to Marc Ira Sobel and Debra McGlynn in New Rochelle, New York. But sadly, his dad passed away in 2015.

His parents were separated, and his mom remarried John McGlynn, who has served United States Marine Corps.

He also has a brother, Kevin Sobel, a partner at personal injury practice Kanner & Pintaluga. Additionally, he is the managing attorney of the practice’s Georgia, Texas, and Mississippi teams.

Kevin Sobel and his grandparents shared a tight bond. Frank Sobel, his late grandfather, started Canterbury Belts, a successful fashion company. He maintained his independence until retirement, and only then did he sell the business to a major corporation.

Frank Sobel was a revolutionary in his own right. He was Jewish and wed a Puerto Rican in the 1940s, which was taboo even in New York. That may explain why he didn’t flinch when his oldest grandchild came out as gay.

Chris Sobel’s Education and Career

Ken Rosato’s husband earned a BS in Print Journalism/Political Science from the University of Miami in 2001. Before that, he had a seven-month stint in 2000 as an associate producer at WFOR-TV CBS Miami and a 10-month term as a web producer at Knight Ridder, a media company specializing in newspaper and Internet publishing.

In 2001, Sobel began working for Sun Sentinel Media Group as a copy editor before rejoining CBS Miami. From 2002 to 2004, he served as the senior producer at Miami’s WSVN 7 News and relocated to New York City, where he worked at WCBS for nine years.

From 2014 to 2022, Sobel served as an executive producer of WNYW-TV in New York City before rejoining WCBS in July 2022.

Ken Rosato and Chris Sobel’s Relationship

Considering Rosato and Sobel’s professional backgrounds, it is safe to assume that the couple met through work. A post by Sobel suggests that the couple has been together at least since 2003.

On May 13, 2023, Sobel said, “It’s our 24th anniversary today. So 24 years down. Forever to go!”

Rosato rarely gives viewers a glimpse into his personal life, while Chris frequently posts about the former ABC7 journalist.

On August 6, 2016, the couple married at Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And they also took their dogs, Tyler and Penny, to the wedding.

There is an interesting story about Sobel’s wedding ring. It was too tight that it stuck at his knuckle, but after a few tries, the couple managed to get it on.
