Former Broadcaster Pleads Guilty

WILKES-BARRE — A former broadcaster accused of theft was sentenced Wednesday to two years of probation in Luzerne County after entering a guilty plea.

Mark Thomas from Wilkes-Barre pleaded guilty to lesser charges after allegations he received more than $25,000 in unemployment compensation while he worked two jobs.

As part of his sentence the man has to pay back the money to the state.

Thomas once worked at WVIA and WYOU as well as running the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre.
