The funny thing about it is Snedeker would probably laugh about it. I could see Tom Clark getting pi$$ed off and trying to come after someone for it. I've heard many times that Tom isn't the nicest guy in the world.

You are being kind, the rumors are that him and Maureen never met a bottle they didnt like!!!! One sunday am broadcast she had a very unattractive black eye. Most of the sunday morning broadcasts, she looks as if she rolled into make-up and wardrobe ( I love her style though!) directly after rolliing out of a bar.

Joe S. is unorthox to say the least, but is a wonderful educator! I have learned so much about the weather from him, and even how to alienate people if I am so inclined! lol

WNEP focuses more on the Scranton where WBRE is more focused on the Wilkes-Barre area, hence the viewership is higher.

I haven't found that to be true lately. It seems like WBRE has been covering Scranton better than WNEP. WBRE seems to focus on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, while WNEP is more concerned with brush fires out in the hinterlands of Clinton or Snyder Counties.

WNEP broadcasts the news about 10 times a day, plus they have WNEP-2 broadcasting more news. And they have the huge Top 16 high school football countdown which I'm not even sure if WBRE tries to duplicate.

It's no surprise that most people go to WNEP. We only watch WBRE if there's a college football game or something pre-empting WNEP.

wnep seems to do the same 5 or 6 stories several times a day focasing on outlying towns and counties and mainly consisting of accidents,fires,with one or two murder,sport stories thrown in AND WBRE AT LEAST BRINGS IN NATIONAL EVENTS FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY----minus snedeker's whining and simpering over tom imo

To go along with Newswatch 16 at 5, 6, 7, 9, 2, 2:30. 3:15, 3:50, 5, 5:30, 6, 7, 7:30, 10, 10:30, 11:00? Pretty soon they will have Newswatch 16 at midnight. Because I can never get enough of the same stories of fender benders in Tioga County!

...and this is how WNEP keeps its edge. If I watch the 4:30 newscast, I can skip the rest of the PM rehashes. And in the morning, I watch at 5 AM and occasionally there will be some actual "news" but in many cases, it's just MOTS from last night's broadcast. By starting earlier (and earlier), some people can bypass WBRE's news, thereby giving 16 a leg up.

I get most of my news via newspaper. I refuse to watch the morning news on 16 - which I have dubbed the Keystone Komedy Klub. If I'm not otherwise occupied, I'll watch the noon broadcast, just to see if anything actually happened since I read my paper at 5AM
