May joined Channel 3 in October, 2007 as co-anchor of the weekend evening newscasts. In January, 2008, he was promoted to weeknight anchor. Previously, May had been an anchor at the CBS sister stations in Boston, anchoring WBZ-TV’s News at 5 p.m. and WSBK-TV’s News at 9 p.m. He also served as anchor and reporter with WHDH-TV in Boston and as primary anchor for KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas.
