By Kevin Eck 

Fred Shropshire will join NBC10 Philadelphia (WCAU) as a weekday evening anchor on Monday, June 26.

“We are excited to have Fred join the NBC10 family,” said Elizabeth Flores, vice president of news for NBC10 and Telemundo62. “He is a dedicated and community-minded journalist, whose knowledge and passion for storytelling will serve our audience well.”

Shropshire comes from WCNC in Charlotte, where he was a weekday evening anchor. Before working at WCNC, Shropshire was at WTVD in Raleigh, where he anchored the 4 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts. He started his career at WCTI in New Bern, North Carolina and has also worked at WXII in Winston-Salem, N.C., and at WGN in Chicago.


“As a self-proclaimed history buff, I’m looking forward to learning more about Philadelphia, one of the country’s oldest cities,” said Shropshire. “It will be fun for my family and me to explore all that the Delaware Valley has to offer.”
