As the debate continues on the bid to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics to Boston, WCVB-TV has been designated the exclusive streaming partner for key Boston 2024 community meetings, helping to provide a greatly expanded reach for the many Boston 2024 statewide meetings to be scheduled over the next several weeks.

“Boston 2024 is excited to partner with WCVB Channel 5 to bring our Citizens Advisory Group meetings to an even wider audience,” Boston 2024 CEO Rich Davey said. “This partnership helps us to be even more open, transparent and inclusive as we craft a bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Boston. We look forward to engaging the public throughout this historic process – and listening to residents’ input – as we build a plan to host an innovative, sustainable and successful Games.”

“Whether or not you are a supporter of Boston’s bid for 2024 Olympics, it’s an important decision that could have major implications on the city’s economy and infrastructure,” said WCVB President and General Manager Bill Fine. “WCVB’s livestream of the Boston 2024 Citizens Advisory Group meetings will help overcome the inherent space and logistical limitations of attending these meetings in person, allowing a much larger audience to witness these important community meetings live and in their totality,”

The following meetings will be live-streamed on

• March 24th – UMass Dartmouth (WCVB’s livestream will begin when the meeting kicks off at 6:30 PM)      

• April 22nd – Location TBD

Additional Boston 2024 livestreams will be announced at a later date.

Nelly Carreno has announced that she has moved to NECN’s 10AM-4PM broadcasts. Most recently, she was NECN’s prime time meteorologist.

Nelly announced the news on Twitter, saying “Big announcement!! I’m happy to announce that starting today I will be on in the afternoons instead of during the evening on @NECN & you can watch me almost every 15 minutes from 10am-4pm Monday through Friday.”

Nelly also said that she made the move to do more reporting and community outreach, and to do more work on WNEU-TV, Boston’s Telemundo station.

Before moving to Boston, Nelly worked at WSNS-TV, the Telemundo station in Chicago, as a meteorologist and entertainment reporter. She also hosted the show “Acceso Total,” and filled in as a meteorologist on WMAQ-TV NBC 5.

Nelly has also forecasted for AccuWeather and KXTX-TV in Dallas, Texas.

Before becoming a weather anchor, Nelly was a news anchor at KVII-TV ABC 7 in Amarillo and a news reporter for KTXS-TV ABC 12 in Sweetwater, Texas.

Nelly graduated from The University of Texas in Austin in 1999 with a Bachelor of Journalism, and received a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University in 2010.

No word on where Joe Joyce, current afternoon meteorologist, will go.
