Long time radio newsman becomes borough meter reader
September 1, 2022
For over two decades Joe Viechnicki's voice on the local radio station has been an ever-present staple of the community.
He has been an up-beat, dedicated newsman, and, more than that, a dedicated community member, spending hours upon hours volunteering locally to help make Petersburg a better place.
"The best advice I can give to someone coming into the world of journalism is to be involved in the community and look for those opportunities where you're not a journalist," Viechnicki says. "People give you news stories and they talk to you and meet you and learn that you are a person."
