Scranton ABC-affiliate WNEP is opening a Wyoming Valley newsroom next month.
The high-definition broadcast facility will be located in Wilkes-Barre, and will be the home base for coverage of the Wyoming Valley, WNEP said in a statement. The station has two other newsrooms, located in the Poconos and in Central Pennsylvania.
“WNEP is committed to covering the news from across our entire viewing area,” WNEP president and general manager Chuck Morgan said in a statement. “We believe the addition of a permanent newsroom in Wilkes-Barre will enable us to deliver even better news coverage to this very important part of our market.”
