Boston ABC affiliate WCVB is launching a 10 p.m. newscast on its MeTV affiliate next Monday.

Maria Stephanos and Ed Harding will be joined by chief meteorologist Harvey Leonard and sports anchor Mike Lynch. The station hasn’t announced the weekend anchor team.

“Launching The 10 O’Clock News on MeTV Boston will bolster MeTV Boston’s presence in the market while giving WCVB the opportunity to compete in this time period which is clearly relevant and important to viewers,” said WCVB president and gm Bill Fine.


“I love a 10PM newscast and appreciate what a convenient option it is for viewers,” said Stephanos. “Co-anchoring with Ed is not only a privilege but has also proven to be a pleasure, and we’ll bring unique insight, and some fun, to this new newscast.”

MeTV Boston is WCVB’s second television channel and is available over the air on Channel 5.2 and on the following cable channels: Comcast 292/306, Verizon 461, RCN 29, Charter 184, Metrocast 295, BELD 75.
