*UPDATE* Due to a series of severe thunderstorms prior to and during the 6 p.m. newscast, WNEP-TV was forced to bump our segment likely until Monday. If it’s any consolation, more people likely watch their local TV news on a Monday than a Friday, especially during the summer.
Anthracite Curling Club will be featured during tonight’s WNEP-TV telecasts in the “Sharla’s Show & Tell” segment.
On Tuesday, as the club kicked-off Summerspiel, WNEP sports anchor Sharla McBride tried her hand and slider foot at curling on the rink at Ice Rink at Coal Street Park. Club President Alison Piatt served as tutor to the newscaster.
Based on random glances, it looked like Sharla got the hang of it pretty quickly. You can see what she thought of her experience during WNEP’s 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
