After weeks of speculation the chiefs at WHDH, WSVN sister station in Boston, announced Frances Rivera is the new lead co-anchor for the 5, 6 and 11pm newscasts alongside Randy Price.
She replaces Caterina Bandini who left WHDH recently expecting twins anytime this month. Until now Rivera co-anchored the 4pm, 4:30pm and 5:30pm newscast with Matt Lorch who joined WHDH in August from WPLG.
Rivera signed a new 5-year contract with the station and according to WHDH general manager Mike Carson the newsroom “roared” when the announcement was made.
