Brian Yocono is WPRI 12’s assistant news director and can be seen anchoring 12 News at 4 each evening. He joined the 12 News team in May 2014 as the weekend morning anchor and weekday morning reporter.
Before spending two years at WCPO in Cincinnati, the Maine native spent the better part of a decade broadcasting in his home state. He started in radio and joined the ranks of television news reporting in Presque Isle, Bangor and at the #1 station in Portland as the weekend evening anchor.
After moving to Rhode Island, Brian quickly learned it’s a dynamic state filled with rich history in every community. He is thrilled to call the Ocean State home and to bring you Coverage You Can Count On with an incredibly talented group of journalists.
