Gina Johnson

GinaJohnsonI have experience in almost every aspect of television news production, but my emphasis is on news writing, producing, and reporting. I currently work as the Executive Producer of 69 News at Sunrise at WFMZ-TV in Allentown, Pa. I am responsible for the entire four-hour show. I oversee the newscast, write the majority of the show, handle any breaking news situations, and line produce. I make sure we share things on social media. I also try to create new content for the program and help book segments. Overnight, I also handle assignment desk responsibilities and post to our website if necessary.

Before taking over our Sunrise newscast, I was the Senior producer and prior to that, a producer of the program. I also produced the 10pm newcast, and worked on our weekend 6pm newscast. Part of my weekend responsibilities included coming up with ideas and setting up stories for our reporters. I was also a web producer and handled the assignment desk.

Prior to WFMZ, I worked as a producer for the 11p.m. news at WNEP-TV in Scranton, Pa.

I started working in television news in 2002 at WYLN-TV in Hazleton, Pa. I began working as a reporter during my freshman year of college. Many times, I worked as a one man band, and shot, edited, and wrote my own stories. Upon graduating college I was hired as the lead reporter, and also served as a fill-in anchor and weather person.

I also volunteer and belong to several media organizations. I serve as the Vice Chair of the Board of Governors for the National Broadcasting Society, and a board member for the NATAS Mid-Atlantic Chapter, and am a former IRTS Summer Fellow.
