Yet another broadcaster is now battling the coronavirus, this time in Youngstown, Ohio.

WKBN anchor Stan Boney has tested positive for Covid-19 and at this point, his symptoms are mild. He is still recuperating at home.

“I feel good,” said Boney. “I have some congestion in my nose. But my cough is gone, and I haven’t had a fever since the day after the cough started. I’m on a steroid and antibiotic, which seems to be working.”


The 63-year-old starting feeling symptoms on Nov. 4, when he had a persistent cough.

Boney will be quarantining for 10 days but is working from home during that time, contributing to segments on the 5, 6, 10 and 11 p.m. newscasts.
