Chris Cato Biography

His career actually started in Florida, at WMBB in Panama City! he will never forget anchoring 12 straight hours of coverage during Hurricane Ivan in 2004, “The Year of the Hurricane” in Florida.

Chris left WMBB in 2005 to work at WSPA in Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina. He covered a lot of major stories during his time there, everything from a serial killer to an affair in the governor’s office, but my most fulfilling moment came through some of the investigative work.

They uncovered proof of groundwater pollution beneath a community that has a long history of cancer; our work forced a large corporation to expand its cleanup of the groundwater and resulted in a class-action lawsuit by affected property owners. Cato was honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow and several other awards for that series of stories.

2012 brought him to WCAU in Philadelphia. Chris Cato anchored the weekday morning news and won an Emmy as part of that team.

He is proud to work at such a dynamic TV station that has a legacy of delivering the best coverage to the Tampa Bay market.
