Taylor Cormier

Born in New Bedford in 1990, Taylor has grown up with something of a flair for performing. Whether it was middle school plays, high school performances, or college venues, Taylor was always looking for a way to satisfy the "acting bug". In 2007, Taylor was introduced to WBSM through an internship from Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech, providing him with a much more useful outlet for his creativity. Since 2008, Taylor has worked in the WBSM newsroom, gathering news, covering stories, and relaying the happenings of the day to you. In 2011, Taylor was given the reigns to the Saturday morning slot, where he enjoyed bringing local happenings and discussion to you for nearly two years. Then in early 2013, Taylor introduced the Southcoast to "Mid-Day Live", his daily afternoon talk show which brings today's newsmakers to you!
