Caught Frances Rivera on as MSNBC News co-anchor on "MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts".
Rivera joined MSNBC in February of 2014, and often filled in on MSNBC and NBC'S Early Today show, and also contributed to the Weekend Today Show. Prior to joining MSNBC, Rivera spent two years at WPIX-TV CW 11 in New York City as their morning anchor. From 2001 to 2010, Rivera was in Boston where she anchored the 5, 6, and 11pm newscasts on WHDH-TV NBC 7 as well as the 10pm newscast on WLVI-TV CW 56. While at WHDH, Rivera was recognized with several Emmy nominations. In 2003 and 2007, she won the Emmy award for 'Outstanding Anchor.' Rivera has also worked on-air at KWTV-TV in Oklahoma City, OK and KFDX-TV in Wichita Falls, TX. Rivera has also worked behind the scenes at 'CBS This Morning' and also covered the 1996 election for CBS's political unit. During that time, she was a freelance co-host and reporter for the nationally syndicated PBS program "Asian America." A native of the Philippines, Rivera immigrated to the United States when she was three years old. She went back to the Philippines for college and earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of the Philippines.
A duo with the now defunct Reid Report would be nice too.
