NBC10's Jade McCarthy is engaged


NBC10 sports reporter Jade McCarthy says she knew that her beau of a little more than a year, Gordon Stead, was going to pop the question last week, but "I just didn't know when or how." The Abington-raised Stead, 26,  who works for a private-equity firm, led her on a scavenger hunt last Thursday that ended on Boathouse Row, where he proffered a diamond. The couple then left on a previously scheduled trip to her mom's place in Sherborn, Mass., where her family greeted them. (They were in on it, she says.) McCarthy, 28, says they have no wedding date.
