In August 1997, a reporter and anchor for the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia cashed in on her role as Chief Political Correspondent on legislative news emanating from the state capitol in Harrisburg by accepting a position at WHTM-27, the ABC affiliate in the market owned by Nexstar Media Group.
She’s worked there for 20 years and eight months, anchoring the news at noon and at 5pm. Until last month, few outside of the Delaware Valley and Eastern Pennsylvania had ever heard of Flora Posteraro.
Today, she is attracting national attention — but not for her on-air efforts. Rather, Posteraro is getting notice for a sexual discrimination complaint filed with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission for a reassignment by WHTM she contends is a demotion.
