Levan Reid

WBZ-TV's Levan Reid Levan Reid is a veteran sports reporter who has joined the WBZ-TV Sports team for the New England Patriots football season.  He is a reporter for WBZ-TV’s and The New England Patriots’ flagship programs “Patriots All-Access” and “Patriots Gameday” and is a contributor to “Patriots 5th Quarter” post-game show.

Reid’s career started in Manchester, New Hampshire at WMUR-TV in 1992.  In 1996, he moved to Boston’s FOX 25 (WFXT-TV) where he worked as a sports reporter and covered all of Boston’s major sporting events.  In 2003, Levan went to WUSA-TV in Washington, DC where he worked until 2009, after which he freelanced for a variety of organizations until joining WBZ-TV as a freelancer in July, 2010.

Reid has traveled all over the country covering events such as World Series and Super Bowls.  He is driven by the fans’ passion for their sports and says he draws meaning from his work because the fans care so much.  Football is his favorite sport to cover because, according to him “every week it’s all eggs in one basket.”

While at Notre Dame, he played football for a year but preferred playing second base for the college baseball team.  When he is not working, Levan goes to the gym or enjoys a gourmet meal.
