Panama City, FL – Nexstar Media Group founder Perry Sook celebrates 25 years, highlights serving local communities

Panama City, FL –

WILKES-BARRE, ALZERNE COUNTY (WBRE 28 / WYOU 22 EYEWITNESS NEWS) – It was a special day for all of us at Eyewitness News.

Perry Sook, the founder of our parent company, Nexstar Media Group, visited our stations on Thursday.

Mr. Sook was here to talk about our continued efforts to support our local communities.

Sook’s visit comes a week after the company scored “Founder’s day of mutual aid”, the 25th anniversary of the day Perry Sook founded Nexstar here in northeastern Pennsylvania. A day in which Nexstar employees from across the country volunteer in their communities. Sook’s message on Thursday? Nexstar relies on local.

“We have always strived to be more local to try to be better today than yesterday,” said Sook.

And that’s the main thing according to Sook. Sook sort of returned Thursday to northeastern Pennsylvania, the birthplace of Nexstar. He met up with Eyewitness News staff, people he says are the very foundation of Nexstar.

Nexstar first purchased WYOU-TV in 1996 and two years later WBRE-TV. Today, Nexstar Media Group continues to grow with over 12,000 employees working at 199 stations across the country.

And just this year, Nexstar launched Nation News, a national news program based in Chicago.
