What's in the news?

Let's see what each station did for their 6 p.m. newscast today. If I missed any stories, let me know.

  • George Curry football ads
  • Luzerne County voting
  • Hazelton shooting
  • Park vandalism
  • West Pittston fire
  • Pocono Township fire
  • Wyoming County fire
  • I-80 traffic in Luzerne County
  • Child aafety seats
  • Downtown Scranton development
  • Obvious Valentine's Day story

  • Luzerne County voting
  • Lackawanna County voting
  • Winfield arsons
  • Pocono Township fire
  • Rt. 309 crash
  • Sugar Notch vandals
  • Guys who broke into cars
  • Stealing from Mom (Happy Valentine's Day!)

  • Downtown Scranton development
  • Lackawanna County voting
  • Some sort of study (I didn't catch all of it)
  • Montage Mountain naming rights
  • Rt. 309 crash + safety
  • Sugar Notch vandals

    As usual, WNEP packed the stories into their first block, with WBRE and WYOU doing longer stories. You had your usual mix of fires and crashes, but I was surprised to see only one station did anything on Valentine's Day. Then again, Valentine's Day stories are about as fresh as those "reporter gets tazered" stories.

    WYOU had a strong story to lead their newscast, especially since they are still the go-to station for Scranton news. WNEP buried it later in the newscast, and WBRE obviously didn't touch it.

    In all, just your standard everyday newscast for each station.

    I don't think there are nearly enough "reporter gets tazaered" stories being done. I would also appreciate some "meteorologist/weatherman gets tazered" pieces. And, when they choose to focus on trivial, silly stories and ignore important ones, "news director gets tazered."
