WPMT Hires New 4 and 10 p.m. Anchor

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A new anchor is making her debut at WPMT today.

Rachel Yonkunas has joined the Harrisburg, Pa. station as an anchor-reporter. She will appear on the station’s 4 p.m. newscast Monday through Friday and also co-anchor the 10 p.m. show.

“I cannot wait to immerse myself in everything there is to experience here,” Yonkunas says. “The people are so kind, the communities are vibrant, and I am struck by how visually eclectic this part of Pennsylvania is.”


“When we saw Rachel’s investigative record, we knew she would be a great addition to our team,” says FOX43 general manager Christopher Topf. “Seeing the community impact that Rachel has had with her stories, this move was a no-brainer for FOX43.”

Prior to joining the station, Yonkunas worked at WFSB in Hartford, Conn. and WTEN.

She has won a number of awards, including an Emmy, for her investigative pieces.
