Taylor Cormier

Born in New Bedford in 1990, I grew up with something of a flair for performing. Whether it was high school performances, college venues, or community theater, I was always looking for a way to satisfy the "acting bug." In 2007, I was introduced to WBSM through an internship from Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech, which provided me with a much more useful outlet for my creativity. Since 2008, I have worked in the WBSM newsroom, gathering news, covering stories, and relaying the happenings of the day to you. In 2011, I was given the reigns to the Saturday morning slot, where I enjoyed bringing local happenings and discussion to you for nearly two years. In early 2013, I introduced the Southcoast to "Mid-Day Live," a mid-afternoon program that led way to the "Taylor Cormier Show" that debuted in 2014. A variety of national and local topics are filtered through my views, logic, and humor each and every weekday from 12 to 3 p.m. Be sure to tune in and participate in the dialogue.
