Steve Lloyd

Reporter/Anchor

Started here at WNEP in November of 1990 as a Video Coordinator then branched out into shooting news and operating our KU Satellite truck. Trips to the Democratic National Convention NYC and Woodstock made life interesting. I enjoyed the helicopter flights with Jack, Dave, and Randy. We once flew into NYC to JFK to pick up a tape. Wow what a flight! Time flew bye. From News to Sports I made the switch in 1997 when my great friend Dave Bertram left for NC. He was the best and taught me most of what I apply today. Jim Coles and I shared many trips up and down I81. Jim Coles is the best reporter/anchor in the business and a NY Giants fan. I like the Eagles. People always ask me what I like to cover. I usually say High-School Wrestling. These kids get little TV coverage, but more internet life than other sports besides football. Anthony Rivera from Shikellamy was my first true State Champion I covered. Zain Retherford and Ryan Solomon the last. From there I've enjoyed shooting, reporting and anchoring the sports all over Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania. I have a beautiful wife (who teaches 6th,7th and 8th graders) and an 9 year old son(brown belt in American DoJo Karate and a great swing from the left side for baseball. I love dogs. We've gone from a yellow lab to a beagle.
Favorite sports moments covered include:
(1) Bucknell winning another Patriot League title 2013
(2) The AHL 2001 Calder Cup Finals in Canada with the Penguins. Trip to New Brunswick Canada and St. John with Bonvie. Great food and the reversing falls there. Outstanding.
(3) Gerry McNamara hitting the game winning shot against Notre Dame in the Carrier Dome in front of 33,000 people (2002)
(4) Brennan King of the Red Barons in 2006 hitting for the natural cycle and ending it with a grand slam on his last at bat-probably never see that live again in my life, and (5) covering the Governor's Cup 2008 championship in Durham, North Carolina with Paul Kielbasa-first title for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 20 seasons of minor league baseball. Field of Dreams shot there and ran into the Black Widow-World Billiards Champion.
(6) Best hitter Chase Utley.
(7) Many moments in the football booth with George Curry and Steve Armillay.
