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.

    So? How is this big news? Whoopsie. A penny-ante coal cracker broadcaster did bad. It’s 2years probation. Marissa burke’s husband got less airtime for supplying booze to kids.

    I didn’t think a PBS employee was capable of ever doing anything wrong. I thought it was just the bad people on the other side who don’t like PBS that did naughty things. hmmmmm…..
