Pete Bouchard joined the NBC 10 Boston and necn family in January of 2016, and broadcasts weekday evenings.
He’s been a familiar face to much of Southern New England over the past 13 years as the former senior meteorologist at WHDH in Boston.
Pete studied meteorology at one of first colleges in the country to offer a concentration in broadcast meteorology - Lyndon State College in Vermont.
His television career had humble roots in the basement of a motel in White River Junction, Vermont, where WNNE-TV was housed at the time. His next stops were WMTW in Portland, Maine, WVII in Bangor, Maine, WGME in Portland, Maine, and then on to Fox 25 in Boston.
The search for a television home didn’t end there though. He returned to Portland to work at Fox 51 with his wife as anchor before moving to WHDH in Boston in 2002.
All along the way, he gained experience across all of New England’s microclimates, visited countless schools (where some of the students went onto become interns of his), civic organizations and donated time to dozens of charities.
Pete has received numerous accolades in his long career from the Associated Press, Maine Association of Broadcasters, two Emmy nominations and three Best of Boston awards.
In his spare time, he embarrasses himself on the guitar and likes making sawdust in his workshop.
