Patrice Wood Celebrates 30 Years on NBC10

Cranston, RI, February 4, 2010 - On February 4, 1980, Patrice Wood began her career at NBC10 and, three decades later, she is an award winning journalist and a well-respected leader in the newsroom, anchoring the 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00pm newscasts and serving as the station's Education Watch and Tuesday's Child reporter.
"Patrice is a committed, hard working journalist, whose dedication is an inspiration to all of us," according to Lisa Churchville, General Manager of NBC10.
"There is a reason that Patrice is perennially chosen as the Best Female Anchor by Rhode Islanders - she connects deeply with her viewers."
Over the years, Patrice has interviewed many notable figures such as George H.W. Bush, Billy Joel and Oprah Winfrey.
However, Patrice didn't start off covering the big stories. In fact, it was quite the opposite. "News Director Steve Caminis took a chance and hired me as the night beat reporter," said Wood.
Patrice was primarily a reporter at the time and she worked a sixth day every week for years to get anchoring experience.
"Patrice has been a great mentor to me and countless interns, reporters and producers," says Dan Jaehnig, her 5pm co-anchor.
"Patrice has a shared history with viewers who are comforted by her presence when the news is tough," Gene Valicenti commented.
Patrice has witnessed a lot of changes in the newsroom. "When I started at Channel 10 in 1980, the newsroom was still using manual typewriters," Patrice says with a laugh. "We were just transitioning from film to videotape and then, along came electric typewriters and computers. Three people used to physically man the three studio cameras during newscasts and today, those cameras are robotic and are controlled remotely. As Patrice looks back on her 30 years at WJAR, she says that she is thankful for all of her blessings, "I have a job that's an adventure everyday. My co-workers have helped me along the way and our viewers have encouraged me. I am very thankful to the viewers who have offered constructive criticism because they made me get better. Thirty years later, I still love covering the news."
On Thursday, February 4, 2010, NBC10 will pay tribute to Patrice's years of service in a special presentation of NBC10 News at 6:00 and 11:00pm. "Patrice is a consummate professional who is passionate about the news that touches our communities," said Chris Lanni, NBC 10 Content Brand Manager.
