He is responsible for managing and developing content for WCVB's award-winning website, wcvb.com, as well as all of WCVB's mobile and digital services.

During his tenure at the station, Channel 5 has won every major award in broadcast journalism. In 2002, WCVB won a National Headliner Award for its coverage of September 11, "The Boston Investigation."

He began working for NewsCenter 5 as a news assignment editor in 1984 and was promoted in 1985 to investigative editor. He then became the executive producer of WCVB's investigative news unit in 1990. In 1991, he was promoted to managing news editor and in 1997, he became Assistant News Director.

In 2009, he was named Executive Editor.

"Inside Bridgewater," Ungerleider's acclaimed 1987 series about the Massachusetts state hospital for the criminally insane, won him a prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, a Robert F. Kennedy Award, a National Headliner Award and the UPI Award for National Investigative Reporting.

In 1990, "Reading, Writing ... Reality," a news series about the Boston school system, won him both a Gabriel and an Ohio State Award.

Ungerleider's 1991 series, "Punishment Without a Crime," about the imprisonment of innocent alcoholic women in Massachusetts, won him the prestigious Silver Gavel Award from the American Bar Association.
