Former WPRI 12 reporter, anchor Ann Conway dies

Local News

(WPRI) — The local news business is mourning the loss of one of its own.

Ann Conway passed away suddenly over the weekend, her family confirms.

Ann was an Emmy-nominated anchor and reporter for WPRI 12 and WLNE. After her long-running career in local news, she worked as a public speaker and communications consultant.

Ann — who was living in Newburyport, Massachusetts at the time of her death — is being remembered as a “true class act” and “consummate professional” by those who knew her.

“Ann was always incredibly kind to me and such a great lady. She was a true class act. She will be missed by many,” said Rhode Show co-host Will Gilbert.
