News 5 WCYB proudly unveiled its new Johnson City Newsroom on Thursday evening.
The new WCYB Johnson City Newsroom will help increase our presence and accessibility throughout Washington County, Tennessee, and surrounding areas.
Its location along heavily traveled North State of Franklin allows our news team greater access to cover areas such as Jonesborough, Kingsport, Gray and Greeneville, in addition to Johnson City.
Local dignitaries, along with station staff members and managers, were on-hand for the festivities, which included premiere live broadcasts during the evening newscasts from the facility.
The fully-functioning live studio includes an area to conduct live interviews, as well as an anchor desk for live broadcasts of news, sports and weather content.
In addition, there are video editing/recording stations, along with sales and management offices, to complement our journalists who will be working at the new facility.
We are proud to add this new component of our news operation to further connect with viewers and enhance our newsgathering capabilities in the communities we serve.
