Bob Ward joined FOX25 News as a general assignment reporter in June 1996. Ward is also a fill-in anchor on the news desk. Ward is widely regarded as one of the best crime reporters in New England. From local investigations to federal probes, he is known for getting officials, alleged criminals, even witnesses to go "on record" about high profile cases.
Ward has covered numerous breaking news stories and intriguing criminal cases. His investigative reporting and extensive contacts with law enforcement have led to his weekly FOX25 News series, "New England's Unsolved." The feature profiles unsolved criminal cases in the region and Ward's reports have been instrumental in uncovering new information in these cases.
His expertise as a crime reporter means he works closely with "Mass Most Wanted," a consortium of 39 law enforcement agencies that share information to track down criminals. Ward's "Mass Most Wanted' series provides background and pictures of unknown bank robbers, fugitives and thieves. The reports have resulted in the arrests of some of New England's most wanted criminals.
Ward's broadcasting career includes positions at WJAR-TV in Providence, RI and WMUR-TV in Manchester, NH. He has garnered several Boston/New England Emmys and one Massachusetts Associated Press Award during his time at FOX25. A native New Englander, Ward holds a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication from Emerson College.
