Cory Smith has officially been named evening co-anchor and investigative reporter for Boston NBC owned station WBTS. The station also announced that Tevin Wooten is joining the station as weekday meteorologist.
Last week, we reported that Smith (pictured left) was joining WBTS from NBC-owned WRC in Washington, D.C. Starting Monday, the station said “he will first spend some time transitioning into the market.” After that, he’ll co-anchor at 5 and 7 weekdays alongside JC Monahan. In addition to anchoring, Smith will work as an investigative reporter for the stations specials unit.
Wooten (right) comes from The Weather Channel, where he’s been since 2018. He’ll work the weekday 4 and 7 p.m. newscasts beginning Wednesday, June 8. Meteorologist Pete Bouchard will stay on at 5, 6, and 11 p.m.
Wooten will also be seen in what the station describes as the “weather center on wheels” the NBC10 Boston Weather Warrior and its Storm Ranger, where he will be able to give live views and exclusive real-time updates during extreme weather.
“These two gentlemen exemplify the journalistic integrity every newsroom strives for, “said Kirsten Wolff, vice president of news for NBC10 Boston, Telemundo Boston and NECN. “Cory’s exposure to delivering national news across multiple NBC-owned markets gives him a solid, credible quality Boston viewers expect, while Tevin’s talent for storytelling resonates beyond the forecast. I am thrilled to welcome both Cory and Tevin into the NBC10 Boston family.”
