Alaina Pinto Wiki – Alaina Pinto Biography
Alaina Pinto, an anchor for the WHDH Boston Channel 7 News, cameos in Hubie Halloween, Sandler’s new Netflix film. Appearing in one scene, Pinto plays an anchorwoman named Erin who is one of three women working for a news station who are all dressed as Harley Quinn.
Prior to joining WHDH, Pinto worked at Fox Local 44 and ABC Local 22 in Burlington, Vermont. She had reportedly been on the air until earlier this month after wrapping up filming for the movie in Massachusetts in August.
Pinto, who joined the station in 2016, said she “mistakenly violated” her contract by doing so, adding that she understood why management had to cut ties with her after four years.
The cameo, however, has now led to Pinto being fired from her job as the appearance “violated [her] contract”.
“Hi, Friends! I have some news to share,” Pinto tweeted. “Earlier this week I was let go from 7 News. I am posting this because I want to be open and honest with all of you. Last year, I participated in a cameo in the recently released Netflix movie by Adam Sandler, Hubie Halloween.
While it is unclear how Pinto became involved with Hubie Halloween, the comedy film was shot in and around Massachusetts in 2019, near to where Pinto worked in Boston.
Sandler’s film, which also stars Steve Buscemi and Julie Bowen, has become the most-watched movie on Netflix since its release last week (9 December), despite mixed reviews from critics.

“I am deeply disappointed and saddened, and I hoped this would not be how things evolved,” Pinto tweeted. “Thanks to all my wonderful 7 News viewers and my supportive and great colleagues at the station.”
Pinto said her reporting job had been an “honor and a privilege” while promising to keep her 13,000 Twitter followers updated on her next career move.

“Tracy, you went with Harley Quinn, too?” Pinto’s character asks reporter Tracy Phillips, who was played by Jackie Sandler.
“Sure did, Erin,” Phillips replies. “Only one day a year to show your ex what he’s missing.”
