Altoona’s WTAJ-TV (10) has opened a bureau in the Johnstown suburb of Richland Township, according to the Centre Daily Times.
Two employees will work there, including Sean Dreher, formerly a weekend anchor and Blair and Centre counties correspondent for Johnstown’s ABC affiliate, WATM-TV (23) and its sister station, WWCP-TV (8).
Those stations recently discontinued their news coverage and outsourced the work to WJAC-TV (6).
The new office, to be used for both news coverage and advertising sales for the CBS affiliate, will be at 907 Old Scalp Ave. … just a short walk past Richland Cemetery to WATM and WWCP at 1450 Scalp Ave.
A live feed from the Johnstown bureau to WTAJ’s master control room is in the works, the CDT says.
