Johnny Mehler joined the NEWS CENTER team in March of 2013, and is adjusting well to life in the state of Maine.

Johnny grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and spent the last four and a half years living in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. He attended Temple University where he graduated with a degree in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media. While attending Temple, Johnny was part of the school's student-run, Emmy Award-winning newscast Temple Update where he held various positions from technical director to Main Anchor and Sports Anchor. He was also a programming intern for 6ABC in the country's 4th largest television market.

Aside from working on Temple Update, Johnny also was a member of Temple's Division I roller hockey team as the squad's starting goaltender. He still enjoys all types of athletic and outdoor activities, making Maine a perfect fit for him.

Johnny is happy to call Bangor his new home, and looks forward to what each new day brings his way. If you have a story idea for Johnny, you can send him an e-mail anytime to jmehler@wlbz.gannett.com. You can also follow him on Twitter, @JohnnyBangor.
