Walt Buteau

Walt joined Eyewitness News back in 1994 and is a 16 year veteran of television journalism. He is now the station�s 5:00 co-anchor and also files reports for our late newscasts. His work has run the gamete from co-anchoring a daily special on the Plunderdome trial to covering the Little League World Series. He even took a sky-dive for a special report on adrenaline junkies.

 ďż˝The Cianci trial was a true opportunity to follow and cover history but I also love to do stories about people who feel like no one is there to help them. Still, following the kids from Cranston and watching them strive for their dream remains my favorite story.ďż˝

 The biggest event he covered is the terrorist attack on September 11th. Walt and his crew were the first local journalists to make it to Manhattan.

 ďż˝It was something that is still unbelievable to me. Itďż˝s unreal that we were at ground zero by 3:30 that afternoon and live by 6:00 that evening. During the next week, we found several Southern New Englanders who were in New York that day. Theyďż˝re stories were extremely compelling and we were happy to help their families, friends and others hear them and see that they were okay.ďż˝

 One recent addition to Eyewitness News involves Waltďż˝s ďż˝Street Storiesďż˝. The focus is on people who fight failure and sometimes tragedy to succeed. Street Stories run Friday nights at 11.

 ďż˝Itďż˝s a look inside some of the darker corners of Southern New England that often go unnoticed. It is ďż˝the rest of the storyďż˝, the other side of the tragedy. Itďż˝s about what happens after someone appears down and out. The common thread is always the human spirit.ďż˝
