Rebecca Turco joined the Spectrum News 13 newsroom in 2019. Passionate about each day at her job, Rebecca wakes up early to report your morning news.

For her, Rebecca is inspired by the opportunity to hold truth to power and tell people’s stories. A proud alumni of Quinnipiac University, Rebecca holds a degree in broadcast journalism with a minor in political science.

Originally from Rhode Island, Rebecca is new to Central Florida and happy to trade in her snow gear for sunscreen.

Rebecca worked most recently as a weekend anchor/reporter at ABC6 News. While there, she covered several high-profile national stories, including the murder trial of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez, as well as preliminary court proceedings for the landmark case in which then-teenager Michelle Carter was later convicted of manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself through text messages and phone calls. She was also the go-to reporter on the legislative and legal battle for Rhode Island’s first-in-the-nation truck toll system that charges only tractor-trailers in order to fund fixes for crumbling roads and bridges. Before that, Rebecca was a reporter and morning/noon anchor at WOAY in southern West Virginia. 

In her free time, you can find Rebecca exploring Central Florida and its theme parks. She also enjoys going to the beach with good company and a good book. Rebecca is always looking for a recommendation for things to do and see in the Orlando area.
