Pete Muntean believes in order to tell a great story, you must have one yourself.
Pete’s story in broadcasting goes back to 2004. His summer job touring with an air show stunt pilot landed him one of his first gigs on the announcer’s stand at the Lancaster Airport Community Days air show.
That summer job ended, but Pete didn’t stay far from the microphone. He enrolled the University of Maryland and anchored its nightly news show, “Maryland Newsline.” There his exemplary reporting earned him honors from the Washington, D.C. Emmy chapter and from the Chesapeake AP Broadcasters Association.
After working behind the scenes at CNN in Atlanta and CBS News in New York, Pete’s story came full-circle when he joined the News 8 team in June 2010. Since then he has covered the Penn State scandal, the trial of Jerry Sandusky, the Flood of 2011, and the 10th anniversary of the Quecreek Mine rescue.
When he’s not on the air, Pete is usually in the air. An accomplished pilot with commercial and instrument licenses, he flies out of Smoketown Airport.
