Steve Lloyd joined WNEP-TV in 1990.

Started here at WNEP-TV 16 in November of 1990 as a Video Coordinator after graduating from Kutztown University- then branched out into shooting news and operating our KU Satellite trucks. Covered the Democratic National Convention in New York City in 1992 and then to Woodstock NY in 1994. Took many flights in Skycam 16 with Jack, Dave, and Randy. We once flew into NYC to JFK to pick up a tape and flew over the Statue of Liberty. In 1997 I switched departments from News to Sports when sports photographer Dave Bertram left for North Carolina. Over the years worked with Jimmy, Tim, Jay, Tom, Drew, Ping, Sharla, Brian, Joe, Paul, and Landon and many other talented journalists. I enjoy covering all the high-school sports that we have here in NEPA including the RailRiders, Penguins, I’m married now for 17 years to my beautiful wife Amy (who teaches 5th grade at ITE in Scranton ) We have one son Zach who will turn 16 in October. He is now in 9th grade at West Scranton High School. He runs XC, plays basketball and baseball.
Favorite sports moments covered include:
(1) Bucknell Men’s Basketball Patriot League Championships with McNaughton and Muscala.
(2) The AHL 2001 Calder Cup Finals in Canada with the Penguins. Trip to New Brunswick Canada and St. John with Dennis Bonvie. Great food and the reversing falls.
(3) Gerry McNamara from Bishop Hannan hitting the game winning shot for Syracuse against Notre Dame in the Carrier Dome in front of 33,000 people (2002)
(4) Brennan King of the SWB Red Barons in 2006 hitting for the natural cycle and ending it with a grand slam on his last at bat.
(5) Covering the Governor’s Cup 2008 championship in Durham, North Carolina with Paul Kielbasa-first title for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 20 seasons of minor league baseball. Field of Dreams shot there and ran into the Black Widow-World Billiards Champion.
