Brittany Boyer joined WNEP in July 2013. You can catch her doing the weather on the weekends and reporting news during the week.

Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Brittany always knew she wanted to work at a local news station. She made her first stint at the green screen and the anchor desk in high school being involved in her school’s morning show.

After graduating, she took her passion for news and weather to Penn State University. She received degrees in Broadcast Journalism and English.

From there she landed a job at Accuweather. Brittany says this paved the way and opened the door to start her career in weather. While there she presented weather forecasts across North America.

After getting a taste in the weather field, Brittany moved west to her next job in DuBois, Pa. She worked for WJAC-TV for two years as the stations northern tier reporter and fill-in weather anchor.

Brittany is happy to be back closer to home and at WNEP. When she is not working in the newsroom or weather center, she is working toward receiving her Meteorology degree from Mississippi State University.

During her free time she also enjoys working out and trying new recipes in the kitchen. When time allows she enjoys traveling to Canada to visit her family in Montreal.

    Wayne County Residents Clean Up, Wait for More Snow

    HONESDALE — It was enough snow to grab the shovel this morning for people who live in Honesdale. It was also enough snow to cover up the main and side streets in the borough. Even with a few more inches of snow, many admit this winter hasn’t been that bad. “This is better than last year so far. Last year was a terrible year for me. I fell twice and I was out of work a couple of times,” Thomas […]

    Two-Part Storm Headed Our Way

    We are tracking a two-part storm headed our way. Part 1: A clipper system moving in from the west Sunday night will bring snow to the area late Sunday night into Monday. The highest amounts will be over central Pennsylvania and counties to the south. The farther north you go, expect lighter snow but still enough to slow things down on Monday. Part 2: Monday night into Tuesday is when the heavier snow will likely begin. The position of this […]

    Medical Students Hold Die-In Protest

    SCRANTON — It wasn’t the typical protest for medical students at The Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton. It was what’s called a die-in protest. “Its main goal is to create awareness in this community in Scranton and in the TCMC community, but also to peacefully protest against racial injustice in health care and in the health care system,” Rashida Merchant, an organizer of the event said. More than 70 medical colleges across the country have joined in on similar protests […]

    Recreation Complex Being Planned

    JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP — A new recreation complex is in the works for a community in Lackawanna County. An empty field in Lackawanna County may one day be the new home of a recreation complex. Right now, Jefferson Township doesn’t have its own park or recreational fields, but township officials are working to change that. “I think that would be great. You know, summertime come and take the kids out, slides, they would love it,” said township resident Alisha Kellogg. “We […]

  • Meat Shop Destroyed By Fire Reopens

    STEVENSVILLE- A meat shop in Bradford County is off to a fresh start this year in Bradford County along Route 706 just outside of Wyalusing. Last June, Dotti Lou Meats was destroyed after a fire started in the ceiling. Customers hoped the family owned business would rebuild. “I have bought many hams and things here.

    Former Penn State Quarterback, Fans Hope NCAA Restores Paterno’s Wins

    SCRANTON — There was buzz amongst Penn State fans Tuesday after reports the NCAA may restore wins wiped away after the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports there are negotiations to restore more than 100 wins that were wiped away by the sanctions. If the NCAA gave those 111 wins back to Penn State, Joe Paterno would once again be the winningest coach in college football history. Newswatch 16 talked to former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin […]

    Paying Tribute to Hometown Marine

    SPRINGVILLE TOWNSHIP — “He was a headstrong Marine, very motivated.” The inside of the Springville Baptist Church was filled with family, friends, and a few dozen Marines all paying tribute to Staff Sergeant  Andrew Stevens. “He wasn’t just a son-in-law. He was like a son to me. We had many great trips, many great journeys,” Karin Dorman, Stevens’ mother-in-law said. The 27-year-old Springville native was killed January 2 in a crash along Route 29. State police said Stevens was at a stop […]

    Political Cartoonist Reflects on Tragedy in Paris

    SCRANTON — Since the early 2000s John Cole has been the mind behind the political cartoons you see in the Scranton Times Tribune. Some cartoons have brought harsh feedback over the years. Even with some unhappy readers, he never imagined people in his line of work would experience this. Wednesday’s attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo still is hard to comprehend. “It’s really an attack on what we do, of what we do for a living, which is to […]

    Route 309 Project Wrapping Up

    FAIRVIEW TOWNSHIP — Things are finally getting back to normal along Route 309 in Luzerne County. The busy road has been down to one lane each direction since April due to construction. “Sometimes there’s a lot of traffic, you know coming up the mountain after work and stuff like that. When the blasting was going on, we would be held up,” Dorothy Kutz of Mountain Top said. The project was part of a $5.2 million safety enhancement program. Over the […]

    Luzerne County Considers Vehicle Registration Fee

    Drivers in Luzerne County may soon find themselves paying a little more money each year when registering or renewing their vehicle registration. A bill passed last year allows PennDOT to add a new fee that would collect money for county roads and bridges. As of January 1, counties in Pennsylvania can adopt an ordinance that charges drivers an extra $5 a year when registering a vehicle. The money would go toward fixing county-owned bridges and roads, and it’s something that […]
