Alison Bologna is an award-winning journalist, who anchors NBC 10 News at 7 p.m. with Dan Jaehnig, 5:30 p.m. with Gene Valicenti and reports with the NBC 10 Money Watchers Team, covering business and financial news of the day.

Prior to NBC 10, Alison anchored in Boston at Fox 25 News and produced undercover reports for Dateline NBC as one of the network's youngest producers in New York City.

Alison has covered stories in virtually every part of New England, delivering live breaking reports on all major events including the death of Ted Kennedy, the Red Sox World Series' win and the tragic Station Nightclub Fire.  Several of her investigative reports have resulted in reforms at local and state levels. Notable reports include exposing holes in sex offender registry lists, overcrowding in state juvenile detention facilities, and a Vietnam Veteran claiming to have earned his most prestigious medal, when in fact, the Army never issued it to him; after Alison broke that story, President Bush signed a bill into law to take the veteran's name off a Rhode Island post office.

Alison has received many honors and awards for her work including an Emmy Award, an Edward R. Murrow Award, two Associated Press Awards, a Gracie Allen Award, an Investigative Reporters and Editors Award, and two Clarion Awards. The Providence Business News recently named Alison as one of the "40 Under 40" professionals in the Ocean State, and the National Organization of Italian American Women honored Alison for her work in TV and in her community.

Alison currently serves as a trustee at the Old Slater Mill Museum in Pawtucket and on the board of trustees for the Pawtucket Boys and Girls Club. Alison is also an honorary board member at the Matty Fund and a board member at The Providence Center.

Alison graduated with honors from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and earned her undergraduate degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. Presently Alison attends Harvard University and is completing a second master's degree in English and American Literature and Language.

In her free time, Alison enjoys teaching yoga at her studio and running a non-profit organization she founded, which provides free yoga outreach programs for adults living with developmental disabilities, veterans, children in schools, shelters and prisons and men and women in recovery.
