DeMentri gets that new job


WPRI in Providence, R.I., told staff on Wednesday that NBC10 alum Vince DeMentri will start next week.

The memo from news director Joe Abouzeid reads: "I am pleased to announce that after a 16-year absence, Vince Dementri will be returning to Eyewitness News. Vince will be co-anchoring Eyewitness News this Morning and Noon on WPRI-12 and Fox Providence with Elizabeth Hopkins. Vince will also co-host The Rhode Show on Fox Providence, along with Elizabeth and Shawn Tempesta. Vince has spent the past 16 years in Detroit, New York, and Philadelphia. He will start here next week, and will be on the air beginning Monday, January 26th. Please join me in welcoming Vince back to Providence."

Contacted Wednesday, DeMentri did not wish to talk about it.

DeMentri settled his lawsuit against NBC10 and former coanchor Lori Delgado last month. She is still job-hunting.
