NBC10 hires new anchor

Give a warm Philly welcome to Chris Cato, the newest member of the NBC10 team. Cato will anchor the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscast on weekends with Denise Nakano, and contribute to weekday reports.

Cato comes to Philly from CBS affiliate WSPA in Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he had worked since 2005. As well as anchoring broadcasts in S.C., Cato was the station's Community Watchdog reporter. This year, Cato was named 2012 Reporter of the Year by the South Carolina Broadcasters Association.

Cato began his career in Panama City, Florida, but is originally from Oneonta, Alabama. His Twitter profile says he has a 'deep love of Crimson Tide football." How long will it be until he's bleeding Eagles green? He will move to Philly with his wife, Carmen, and son.
