Peggy Lee


Peggy Lee joined the Newswatch 16 Team in October, 2008. While she is thrilled to be living and working in Northeast PA, she is certainly no stranger to the area. With family in the Lock Haven area and the Poconos, Peggy has spent much time playing in the mountains (and skiing down them!).

Peggy Lee comes to WNEP after spending two years at WJZ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Baltimore, MD; before then Peggy worked in the country's southeast region, reporting on the crime beat in Savannah, GA at WJCL-TV.

Peggy began her news career working on the assignment desk at WCAU-TV in Philadelphia and to this day continues to long for their cheese steaks.

A New Jersey native, Peggy received a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

On her days off you can find Peggy at the library or out walking her trusty but wacky dog, Nanook, who she rescued from a shelter in Georgia.
