James Wesser

James joined abc27 in November of 2021.

James knows Pennsylvania well, as he grew up in the Pocono Mountains. He has always had a passion for discovering what is happening in the world around him and has a strong desire for helping people.

He graduated in 2016 from King’s College in Wilkes-Barre where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications. His original major was meteorology, but he found a true love for writing, graphic design, and video production.

While at King’s, James also had his own radio show where he worked on productions with the college’s news station. Plus, he had the opportunity to head to Florida to participate in the Walt Disney College Program. For James, not only was working in Disney a bucket list item he got to check off, but the internship also taught him how to interact with people from all over the world.

Prior to his position with abc27, James has also interned at a Nexstar sister station, WBRE/WYOU in Wilkes-Barre and was also a production assistant for the PBS affiliate WVIA.

When James isn’t working and creating content, you can find him reading, riding roller coasters, playing video games, and hanging out with friends at his second home — Hersheypark.
