NBC10 Boston announced Thursday that Cory Smith has been named evening co-anchor and investigative reporter for NBC10 Boston News, and Tevin Wooten joins the team as weekday meteorologist.
“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.”
