Out in the heartland, away from the major metropolitan areas, you'll find national networks broadcasting through many old-fashioned UHF stations. And if you watch the local news on WHTM-TV, the ABC affiliate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, you'll find Perrise Thomas.
Ms. Thomas, who joined WHTM in May 2015, got her start at WJTV-TV's news department in Jackson, Mississippi, where she covered stories about missing children and uncovering corruption in local prisons.
WHTM's Web site says that Ms. Thomas enjoys "meeting new people and telling stories," which are "her real passions." Sounds like what a good reporter should be to me! :-)
