Jim Hamill landed a job at Newswatch 16 in the Summer of 2006 as a producer and reporter. In 2008, he joined the Central PA Newsroom as a full-time reporter. No stranger to the area, Jim grew up in Honesdale, birthplace of the American Railroad.
His start came during his days at Honesdale High School working for the local radio station, followed by an internship in Philadelphia during college. Jim said both taught him the important role the press plays in society. Jim comes to WNEP from WABI in Bangor, Maine where he was a reporter and photographer. That's where he experienced two truly cold winters, a hike up Mount Katahdin and many unforgettable stories.
Jim is a 2004 graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University. A big Orangemen fan, he golfs, skis and is as competitive as they come. Jim enjoys good music, visiting friends and family and traveling.
