New Anchor Joins WMTW… And He’s A Cutie Patootie
WMTW is adding a new anchor to their line-up in January, and he is most definitely easy on the eyes. His name is Steve Bottari and he comes to Maine from Hearst station KOCO in Oklahoma City. He is originally from New England, so he is coming home.
Here's the official scoop on Bottari from WMTW's press release:
Steve Bottari will join WMTW’s co-anchors Meghan Torjussen, Tracy Sabol and Maine’s Chief Meteorologist Roger Griswold as the new weeknight co-anchor of the 5 & 11 PM newscasts in January – bringing his Midwest and national news experience to Northern New England.
“His sharp reports during Midwest storms and early morning anchoring in Burlington, Vermont, have energized this New England native’s return to Maine conditions,” said Dave Abel, WMTW President and General Manager.
“Steve brings a wealth of experience including his investigations on lead poisoning risks and the national security threat to the country's oil reserves. He served as a special national correspondent for Hearst television stations across the country covering earthquakes, reporting on the ground in Florida during Hurricane Irma, and on scene covering the deadly police ambush in Dallas, Texas,” News Director Amy Beveridge added.
When Steve settles into Maine, you might see him trying to keep up with Summer, his rescue dog.
Welcome to Maine, Steve!
