John joined the WECT sports team in January of 2010 after spending the past six years in Bangor, Maine. He is no stranger to the South, he has worked in Dalton, Georgia and Meridian, Mississippi, and excited to be away from the snow and cold of Maine.
John graduated from Syracuse University in 2000 and is a diehard Orange Basketball, Football, and Lacrosse fan. Over the years he has covered hundreds of sporting events, but his trip to Phoenix, Arizona for Super Bowl 42 to cover the Patriots and Giants has to be his favorite. When John is not working you will find him on the golf course trying to improve his game.
