Angel Salcedo will join Boston ABC affiliate WCVB as a sports reporter for SportsCenter 5.

Salcedo joins lead sports anchor Duke Castiglione and sports reporters Josh Brogadir and Naoko Funayama starting on Monday.

“Having grown up here in Boston, Angel is deeply connected to the community and has been following Boston sports teams his whole life. He is an extremely talented journalist who will make a great addition to the SportsCenter 5 team, and we are excited to keep him in the Hearst Television family here at WCVB,” said WCVB president and general manager Kyle I. Grimes.


“Angel is a gifted storyteller whose versatility enables him to produce meaningful content no matter the subject,” said news director Margaret Cronan. “He is both thoughtful and energetic and will do a fabulous job covering sports in his hometown. We are thrilled to welcome him to the WCVB family.”

“I grew up watching Channel 5 and have always respected the station’s high level of journalism and service to the community,” said Salcedo. “Having this opportunity to report and produce sports in my hometown at one of the best local news stations in the country, and in the ultimate sports town, is an absolute dream come true.”

Salcedo last worked at Hearst Television station KOAT in New Mexico, where he served as a general assignment reporter, sports reporter, and fill-in sports anchor.
