Providence’s WJAR To Launch Early-Morning News

WJAR, the NBC-affiliate serving Providence and Bristol, is set to start the weekday morning newscasts at 4:30 a.m. beginning November 28.

“We’re keeping up with the changing times,” WJAR general manager Vic Vetters said in a statement. “As more of our viewers start their day earlier, WJAR will provide them with the news and weather they need.”

The WJAR morning team is anchors Barbara Silver Morse and Frank Coletta (pictured), along with Mario Hilario, reporters Audrey Washington and Tom Stewart, and meteorologists Gary Ley and Kelly Bates.

WJAR Names Barbara Morse Silva Morning Anchor

Starting Monday, Barbara Morse Silva will co-anchor the WJAR morning newscast, according to the Providence Business-News. She will be paired with longtime morning anchor Frank Coletta, who has not had a co-anchor on the program for more than 15 years.

Coletta has anchored the morning show since 1985. Throughout his tenure, he has had only one other co-anchor: Karen Reed, who worked for the station from 1994-95. There are always weather updates from a meteorologist — currently Gary Ley — but Coletta has spent the majority of his time as solo anchor.

Morse Silva joined the Providence NBC-affiliate in 1995 as a health reporter and has anchored the weekend evening newscasts for the past three years.
