Anchor / Reporter | Bo has been a reporter with WFMZ since 2006. In October of 2014, he added co-anchoring Saturday mornings' 69 News at Sunrise with Karin Mallett.

During his tenure with 69 News, Bo's covered everything from Barack Obama's 2008 inauguration, the Jerry Sandusky trial, the Boston Marathon bombings, the devastation of Superstorm Sandy at the Jersey Shore and in Lower Manhattan. He especially likes to focus on environmental issues, animal abuse matters, and human interest features. In November of 2017 and in the wake of Hurricane Maria he travelled to the mountains of Puerto Rico. There he reported on struggles of daily life for many dealing with the after effects of the disaster;  a career defining assignment that garnered an Emmy nomination. 

Bo's favorite assignment was a two-year adventure series called Bo's Xtreme Adventures. His nearly two dozen stories took viewers parachuting, riding in an acrobatic helicopter, race car driving, astronaut training, ice climbing and bobsledding with the U.S. National team in Lake Placid NY.

When not at work, you will find Bo at the gym or hiking with his wife and their dogs. He also loves to read and travel to the Berkshires in western Massachusetts and the Cotswold's in England.
