Boston NBC owned station WBTS has named two new evening anchors.

The station has hired Priscilla Casper as co-anchor of its 4 p.m. weekday news. She’ll work alongside newly promoted Colton Bradford. Casper will also co anchor the 6 and 11 p.m. nightly news alongside Glenn Jones. She starts the first week of August.

In addition to anchoring at 4 with Casper, Bradford will co anchor the midday news with co-host Melody Mendez. He’ll continue to co-host The Hub Today with Maria Sansone.

“The additions of Priscilla and Colton strengthen our stations impact in the Boston community,” “said Kirsten Wolff, vice president of News for NBC10 Boston, Telemundo Boston and NECN. “Priscilla’s trustworthy approach for delivering breaking news and exclusive interviews, combined with Colton’s natural ability to engage loyal and new audiences, positions NBC10 Boston as the favorite across all of our station’s news platforms. I am proud to welcome Priscilla and Colton into the NBC10 Boston family.”

Casper comes to Boston from KVOA in Tucson, Ariz. where she anchored the station’s Noon, 4 and 5 p.m. evening newscasts. She worked at KGUN in Tucson before that.
