  1. I was really worried that Dave Sess was not going to be on WKBN any more. I will have to be sure to watch at 6:00 p.m. we love Dave. We have watched him since he started at WKBN.

    • Dave Sess and Erika Thomas are co-anchoring the new 90 minute newscast every weekday on WKBN 27 from 5PM – 6:30PM. This move frees up Dave to bring viewers more stories from the field.
