Lara Greenberg


Lara is a Jersey girl, born and bred! She’s originally from East Brunswick, near Rutgers University.

Lara joined the Newswatch 16 team in July 2012 as a multi-media journalist, shooting, writing, and editing her own stories.

She comes to WNEP from Your News Now, or YNN, a 24-hour cable news station in Syracuse, NY. She worked in the Corning/Elmira Bureau for two years, where much of her time was spent in Pennsylvania’s Northern Tier, covering gas drilling and the devastating 2011 flood. She was part of the YNN team that won a Syracuse Press Club Award for flood coverage throughout the Twin Tiers.

Lara started her career in news while studying at Syracuse University, where she graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and minors in Music Industry and Spanish. While at school, Lara spent four months studying abroad in Madrid, Spain, where she learned to speak Spanish almost fluently. She also interned with WPIX-11, the CW affiliate in New York City and the nationally-syndicated radio show Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.

She is thrilled to live in Northeast Pennsylvania and get to know the region.

A self-proclaimed pop culture junkie, Lara loves to see movies and watch TV. She’s also an avid reader and has a blog, where she reviews the books she reads. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and friends in New Jersey and New York City.

If you’ve got a story idea, send Lara an email, or follow her on Facebook and Twitter @LaraReports. She’d love to hear from you!
