Noah Pransky is an investigative reporter at 10News in Tampa Bay, specializing in exposing government, corporate, and community abuses.
A 13-time Emmy award-winning investigative reporter with 10News WTSP, Noah traces his broadcasting roots back to the age of 10, when he reported his first story on Boston's WBZ radio.
Since then, the Needham, Mass. native earned a broadcast journalism degree at Boston University, covered the Georgia Bulldogs in Northeast Georgia, and worked in both sports and news in Fort Myers. In addition to working the Red Sox beat during spring training, he's also worked for the franchise twice. He served as "Wally the Green Monster" from 2000-2001 and as the team's spring training public address announcer from 2008-2009.
Noah's won five regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for news and sports reporting, including a national recognition in 2013 for exposing safety issues on youth soccer fields. His investigations into red light camera abuses were also honored with national George Polk and duPont-Columbia awards, as well as national finalist honors from the Livingston and National Headliner awards.
The red light camera series not only launched a national conversation about the technology's fairness, but got many injustices fixed. Florida saw a multi-million-dollar drop in fines after the state lengthened yellow light intervals, and the improved signal engineering should help to prevent accidents at tens of thousands of intersections statewide.
However, not all his experiences in front of the camera have been positive - he was a contestant on Hollywood Squares in 1999. He lost. Badly. But despite the disappointment, Noah has since re-focused his efforts toward achieving his other lifetime goal - appearing as a puzzle on Wheel of Fortune.
Until then, Noah can be found running, cycling, swimming, or competitive eater, where he has won more than a dozen pepper-, hot dog-, and tater tot-eating contests.
