Starting a new year with new studio, new features, and a new market!
As we begin 2017 we thank God for giving us the opportunity to serve you over these past four years. It has been a great joy. We have come to know and love our community in a very meaningful way. The people of Tioga County Pennsylvania are hard working and caring. When there is a need our community responds. And, there are so many good things that happen here. It has been a privilege for us to be able to cover many of these events. Thank you for watching Wellsboro Home Page.
As always, a huge shout out to our Home Page family of advertisers. They are the ones who make it happen. They pay for the cameras and the lights and all the rest. They pay our staff and for the most part give wind to our sales with their encouraging words of appreciation. We have a exceptional family of advertisers. Please purchase from them when ever you can.
As we begin 2017 we have several announcements that we are very excited to tell you about. First, we have officially established a new parent organization called The Home Page Network. You can find us at TheHomePageNetwork.com and The Home Page Network on Facebook. At this location you will find links to our different Home Page markets and network features including HPN News and Home Page Sports along with our association with Circle W Sports which is operated by our very own Ed Weaver.
During this next year we will be adding HPN Newscasts not only to our Home Page sites but also on Blue Ridge Cable Channel 13. But, our really big news today… is that we would like to welcome Mansfield Home Page as our first addition to The Home Page Network. That’s right, MansfieldHomePage.com is now available along with Mansfield Home Page on Facebook.
Also, on today’s broadcast HPN Sports Director, Ed Weaver, introduces Mr. Brady Connolly as our new Sports Director for the Mansfield market which includes coverage of North Penn Mansfield High School, Mansfield University, and North Penn Liberty High School.
We are also pleased to announce that Dave Cox has joined our Home Page family. Many of you know Dave from his outstanding customer service at the front desk of the historic Penn Wells Hotel. Don’t worry, you will still see his smiling face there as well. With the blessing of Shawn and Ellen Bryant, Dave will be working part time for The Home Page Network. His primary responsibility will be in sales. But, Dave will also be involved in HPN News, as well as other on-air responsibilities.
For those of you who are new to Wellsboro Home Page we would like to give you a brief description and let you know about our broadcast line-up for 2017.
Wellsboro Home Page is a new media publication. It’s loaded with timely news and information from around the world with a special emphasis on things that impact Wellsboro and Tioga County, PA. Home Page is a digital publication that combines internet television, digital print media, online photography and electronic graphics to provide our viewers with the best local online news and information service possible. From breaking news and information to each day’s feature stories – it’s all right here on Wellsboro Home Page.
We publish Wellsboro Home Page in the convenience of a “homepage” format. This means that many of the online services that you use everyday are right here in one place. You can view today’s feature story, check the latest weather, news, and sports, both locally and around the world. Check your mail, do your banking, connect with your social media, be inspired, and find out what’s for lunch.
The features that people use most often are located on the top of our left navigation bar in yellow letters. For example, when you want to check the latest weather – just click on “Weather” and you’ll find a list of today’s best weather resources.
The latest news, sports and business information are also listed there in yellow letters. Again, for your convenience, we’ve included some of the best resources available – both locally and from around the world, such as: the Tioga Freedomist, Blue Ridge Communications, Mountain Home Magazine,The Wellsboro Gazette, WENY, WETM, ABC, CBS, FOX, and many more.
To go back to our front page, click on “Home” or any Home Page icon.
As we mentioned we will be adding Newscasts from HPN News and Home Page Sports in 2017. These news features will be available on all of our Home Page media including The Home Page Network, Wellsboro Home Page, Mansfield Home Page, The Home Page Network on Facebook, Wellsboro Home Page on Facebook and Mansfield Home Page on Facebook. Kaitlyn Callahan along with her colleague Megan Thomas will also be providing special coverage of Mansfield University. On any of our Home Page Websites you will find our news banner just above our list of advertisers. When this banner turns black it tells you that we have posted a new HPN News story or Newscast. When this banner turns red it indicates a breaking news story.
We will be adding new features throughout the year but we are very thankful to be off to a great start. Please go to our Special Features section on the left side bar to see our starting line-up for 2017.
Don’t forget to download either the Wellsboro Home Page App or the Mansfield Home Page App from either the App Store or Google Play. Please go to the bottom of our left side bar for more information on the Home Page App for your market.
A very special thanks to Jim Cooper of The Sign Shop and his outstanding team – Tony, Jess, Derek and Josh for designing and building our new Home Page studios.
Everyone here at the Home Page Network wishes you and yours a very Happy and prosperous New Year. May God bless you with His peace throughout 2017.
