NBC10 and Telemundo62 are No. 1 at 11 p.m. thanks to you, our viewers.

WCAU’s NBC10 News at 11 p.m. was the most-watched late newscast among adults 25 to 54 years old in the Philadelphia television market during May 2017, according to Nielsen. The newscast’s 1.9 rating was a 19 percent increase over May 2016.

Additionally, Telemundo62 / WWSI’s Noticiero Telemundo62 at 11 p.m. was the most-watched Spanish language late news in May 2017 among adults 18 to 49 (a 54 percent increase year over year) and adults 25 to 54 (a 31 percent increase). Telemundo62’s ratings grew from May 2016 in both demographics – by 54 percent among Adults 18 to 49, and by 31 percent among Adults 25 to 54.

"Reaching and serving our audience on-air, online, onsite and on-demand makes NBC10 and Telemundo62 a vital part of the community," Ric Harris, president and general manager of NBC10 and Telemundo62, said. "We’re proud of the teamwork and passion that goes into serving our audience every day. Our goal is to deliver the best content, promotion, and showcasing in every newscast across all platforms. To do that on both stations, in English and in Spanish, is a huge win for us and the community."

This marks the first time since 2004 that NBC10 ranked No. 1 at 11 in the highly-competitive May sweeps and the first time at No. 1 during a non-Olympic sweep since February of 2005.

Additionally to being Philly’s news leader at 11 p.m., NBC10 Weekday Mornings from 4:30 to 6 a.m. and NBC10 Weekdays from 4 to 6 p.m. remained No. 2 among adults 25 to 54.

NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Sheena Parveen is leaving Philly but not the NBC family.

Sheena is moving to NBC10's sister station WRC-TV/NBC4 Washington.

"Our loss is WRC’s gain," said NBC10 vice president of news Anzio Williams. "Sheena has been a great advocate and supporter of our communities and her love for pets made her the perfect ambassador for our Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign. I’m certain that DC-area viewers will benefit from her energy, enthusiasm and expertise and immediately connect with her."

Sheena joined the NBC10 First Alert Weather Team five years ago and delivered the weather for such major events as Superstorm Sandy and the Blizzard of 2016. She also delivered weather updates for CSN, the Flyers and 76ers.

"I'm excited about this new opportunity and am delighted that I will remain in the NBCUniversal family," Sheena wrote on Facebook. "However, at the same time I am sad to leave the Philadelphia area and our passionate and loyal viewers. I have enjoyed forecasting the weather here for almost 5 years, and helping to keep our viewers (you) safe."

Sheena will make the move to D.C. at the end of the year.

Life can be difficult for kids and teens growing up in an area where the odds are against them but one organization is hoping to change that.

Dozens of South Jersey people hit the links on Aug. 18 for Crossroads Programs Sixth Annual "Tee Off for the Kids" golf outing at Woodcrest Country Club to help at-risk kids.

Many sponsors from the area came together for a fun day on the golf course with all proceeds going to benefit the Crossroads program -- a non-profit organization focused on empowering youth who are homeless, abandoned, abused or at-risk and helping them to lead healthy, productive lives.

Golfers and non-golfers alike celebrated the day with a barbecue dinner, auction, and award ceremony.

The top sponsors for the event were: Pillinger Miller and Tarallo LLP, The Charitable Exchange and Holman, said organizers.

Giving you the information you need as fast as possible — that’s the guiding principle for the new NBC10 home page, which has been revamped to highlight live video and the news you need to know right now.

The new design on desktop and mobile web highlights all the live video available on the site — everything from newscasts to campaign speeches to the latest episodes of "The Voice" and "Blindspot." A revamped "This Just In" module provides information you need to know from our reporters and social media. And our interactive radar is now available right on the home page.

So what’s new?

  • A sleeker header that follows you across the site. It provides easy access to live video as well as convenient ways to connect with us.

    [[381658151, R,160,101]] The header immediately highlights key sections like News and Weather, and when you hover over the “…” you can find all of the depth of coverage that our site provides.

    The “Watch Live TV” nav item serves as a hub for all of our live video, including a 24-hour-a-day stream of what’s on our on-air channel via NBC.com.

    The “Connect” nav item makes it easy to reach us. Use this nav item to submit breaking news tips, photos or videos, connect with us on social media or sign up for one of our newsletters.

  • A live video bar that highlights important live video that is happening right now, including our on-air broadcasts, news conferences and special events. These live video bars will provide a link to the coverage as well as a few bullet points with more information.
  • [[385091201, R,250,277]]Interactive radar has been added directly to the homepage, allowing you to zoom in and out to track storms in your neighborhood and across the country. In times of severe weather, look in this area for the latest weather alerts and school closings.
  • A “This Just In” section that is constantly updated with the latest news and views, especially on social media. News updates happen fast, so this will be an area of focus during breaking news situations and severe weather events.

[[385089441, C,550,166]]

  • A “Quicknav” on mobile web that allows you to easily navigate between sections on your phone’s browser. Swipe left to see the main navigation items on the site. The “Quicknav” will follow you throughout the site for your convenience.
