Whatever happened to local TV newscaster Patrice Vacarro?

Ken Little

Q. I remember a TV news reporter/anchor back in the ’70s whose name was Patrice Vacarro. Is she still in the area or has she moved on to another news agency?

A. Patrice Vaccaro was a reporter/anchor on WECT-TV in the mid-to late 1970s.

Vaccaro was hired as a reporter in February 1979 at WWAY-TV, according to a StarNews file clip.

From there, the trail goes cold for a number of years. A woman named Patrice Vaccaro Watkins passed the N.C. Paralegal exam in 2010, according to several professional organizations.

Records show a Patrice Vaccaro Watkins lives in Fuquay-Varina, in Wake County. Attempts to contact her were not successful.

    That’s her. She moved to Raleigh and worked at WRAL for a little while. She married the former Sky5 pilot and left TV after that. She used to work for Northern Telecom and a couple of other similar places, don’t know much after that.
