Solorzano promoted

Former WBRE reporter Bianca Solorzano, a "Where Are They Now?" feature, has been bumped to the job of correspondent for CBS News. She was previously a reporter for CBS Newspath, the affiliate service that provides video, packages, and reporter stand-ups to CBS affiliates like WYOU.

Good to see some non-Nexstar, non-bashing-my-former-boss threads finally !

And good for Bianca. She's headed for some great things.

Always impressive. Came off as very driven. When paired with Dave Thomas, boy, her stock really rose. And a sense of humor.

But...(there's always one)...
she has that "female anchor/reporter" delivery and speech that at the very least seemed fake, at worst, annoying.

Still, I'd take her over most. Congrats!

Another good reporter from WYOU, Michael Garguilo was just hired by WNBC in New York... He was morning anchor at WTTG in Washington DC... He's happy to be going home... I worked with him at WYOU in Scranton many moons ago and he was a class act!!!! Good for him!

Bianca IS the complete package, not to mention one of the nicest people in broadcasting you'll ever meet.

I also worked with Mike and he was one of the best reporters and people in the business. In the mid 80's until the early 90's WYOU had some very good people on staff, both in front and behind the scenes. Given time I think the station could have made a real run at both WBRE and NEP.

Worth a mention that her ties to this area are via her mother, who was raised in Pittston, left the area, and last I knew, is back here. Bianca not only worked here, she has a number of relatives here. And unless I am way wrong, she actually started at WBRE as an intern before returning as an employee.

Somewhere in the mid-80s to early-90s, WYOU was beating WBRE at eleven, and was right up there backside at six. It didn't last long, but they were doing it. Sadly, the only race in this market since 1975 has been for number two, and now even that's over.
