Peggy Lee comes to WNEP after spending two years at WJZ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Baltimore, MD; before then Peggy worked in the country’s southeast region, reporting on the crime beat in Savannah, GA at WJCL-TV.
Peggy began her news career working on the assignment desk at WCAU-TV in Philadelphia after two internships in the New York City market. The first day of her second internship was September 11th, 2001, a day she will never forget.
A New Jersey native, Peggy received a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Rutgers University in New Brunswick.
