About WYOUWGBI-TV was the first television station in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and it served as an NBC affiliate for many years. In the 1970s, the station added programming from ABC, and in the 1980s, it became a primary ABC affiliate while maintaining its NBC affiliation. The station's studios were located in the basement of Scranton Preparatory School on Wyoming Avenue in Downtown Scranton for many years, and it remained at this location even after the school moved to a new location. The station was owned and operated by the Megargee family and their company, Scranton Broadcasters, which also owned WGBI radio (910 AM, now WBZU; and 101.3 FM, now WGGY). Scranton Broadcasters was unique in that it was run by five women: Madge Megargee Holcomb, her mother Mrs. Megargee, and Frank Megargee's younger daughters Katharine Megargee Collins, Mary Megargee Griffin, and Jean Megargee Reap.
Throughout its history, WGBI-TV has been committed to serving the community and providing local programming, including news, sports, and public affairs programming. It has remained a trusted source of news and information for viewers in Northeastern Pennsylvania for many years.
