BNEWS Weekly is produced by the BCAT staff. However the production
wouldn't be possible without a core of professional and dedicated volunteers
who are a part of the BNEWS WEEKLY team.
Richard has over six years in community news and has experience covering local politics, crime, events and features. He began his career at a weekly newspaper before becoming a daily reporter. Before joining the BNEWS team he was an editor with Burlington Patch. Rich is interested in photography, loves working in news, and is excited to expand into the arena of televised news coverage. Rich has a master's degree in Journalism and Public Policy from Northeastern University.
Phil Gallagher has served over 10 years as the BNEWS anchor. Phil has 32 years experience in public access programming covering issues of local, state and national interest. His previous productions have included Issues in Burlington, Topics, Editor’s Roundtable, Live Election Night Coverage and numerous local sports and public interest events.
Nick, currently a student at BHS, joined the BNEWS team as a weather reporter in 2010. He has had a fascination with weather since he was 4 years old. While other children would take advantage of snow days off from school by playing outside, Nick would be glued to the TV watching local forecasts and following the Doppler Radar, tracking the storm. His favorite time of the year is fall and winter, not because the holidays, but because it is the most active time of year for storms. Nick also has an interest in computers and media production and hopes to pursue a career in meteorology in the broadcast industry.
Katrina Harrington joins the BNEWS team after graduating from Providence College in May of 2012. At PC Katrina earned her B.A. in Political Science and had a minor in writing. While in school, Katrina interned at WCVB Channel 5 Boston for two semesters. Now that she is back at home, Katrina is excited to continue her passion for broadcast journalism as the BNEWS Sports Anchor. An avid sports fan and athlete herself, Katrina cannot wait to keep Burlington residents up to date on all the sports' happenings. She will also be reporting on some other stories for BNEWS.
