Cat Viglienzoni is the Evening News Executive Producer and Noon News Anchor for WCAX-TV.
Cat graduated in May 2011 from Emerson College in Boston with Honors and a double major in Broadcast Journalism and Writing, Literature and Publishing. She joined the WCAX-TV news team as the weekday morning news producer shortly after that in July 2011. During that time, in addition to her producing responsibilities, she was a reporter and fill-in anchor.
When the station announced in the summer of 2013 that it was launching a new weekend morning news broadcast, Cat jumped at the opportunity to create a show from scratch and was promoted to its producer/reporter. "The Weekend" debuted in September 2013. Cat split her time between hard news and features in the "At Issue" and "Destination Recreation" segments, as well as enterprising her weekly "Sunday Science" series.
In 2016, Cat moved to full-time reporting for the evening news, focusing on covering the news of the day, while also maintaining her interest in science news. In spring 2017, she accepted the promotion to executive producer and anchor.
When she isn't working, Cat can be found working out, social dancing, or cooking and baking. She is also a passionate chocoholic. And yes, her favorite animal is... a cat.
