(Newspaper article: Joe Klapatch) 
EDITOR'S NOTE: Jerry Heller was the News Director of WARM when this photo was taken in the early 70s, not just a "radio announcer". 
Since it's inception as a radio station in 1940, WARM Radio took Election Night very seriously. WARM had news coverage going back many decades before it hit its peak in news gathering in the 60ss, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Throughout that era, WARM had people on the street gathering interviews and data. 
The station usually partnered with newspapers in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Area. The Times Leader and Scranton Tribune were usually the "go to" outlets that The Mighty 590 relied on. 
WARM News on Election Night was for the most part, First, Fast and Factual. 
Election Night and the results were part of the legacy of news and information that made WARM The Mighty 590 the place to dial in for the people of WARMland.
