Longtime WJAC Anchor Will Retire Next Week

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Johnstown anchor, Marty Radovanic, will anchor his final newscast next week after 40 years.

The WJAC-TV anchor has covered high profile news events in the area since 1977. He made his first appearance on the NBC affiliate during the Johnstown Flood. He’s also covered Flight 93’s crash on September 11 among others.

“It’s been such a joy and pleasure to be welcomed into thousands of homes every day over the years,” he told the Tribune-Democrat. “I’ve had the ultimate career, and it was time to let someone else enjoy it.”


Radovanic has shared and documented several health scares over the years, including his blood cancer diagnosis three years ago.

“I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter,” he said. “I’m not sure what the future will bring … but I’m taking that next step knowing my life has been truly blessed,” he told the paper.

He will retire after the 6pm newscast on October 6.
