Journalist – Author – Speaker


Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning—and America’s longest-running, locally-produced—nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and sits on WCVB’s Editorial Board.


Ted’s books have ranged from a collection of his favorite stories culled from over twenty years of reporting (New England Notebook/2013), to a guide to the region’s most famous—and long-running—feuds. (Wicked Pissed/2016). His most recent book, New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic (2017) tells the history of this iconic piece of Americana, and how some of the most colorful and beloved of these old landmarks are unexpectedly finding new life in the big-box store era.


Invite Ted to Speak

Ted loves to talk. Especially about his native northeast little corner of America, of which his stories and anecdotes range from inspirational and poignant, to punch-line and laugh-out-loud. Lot of that. (Just get him started on Vermont’s famed Fred Tuttle…) Ted can be available to do a book event, or share his great New England stories (drawn from over fifteen years of feature reporting as an award-winning broadcast journalist) with your club, school, business, or organization.
